Ilia Chechuro, MADoctoral Researcher
I am a PhD student at the Department of Linguistic and Cultural Evolution and a member of the CALC research group. I mainly focus on computational approaches to socio- and contact linguistics. The aim of my PhD project is to develop the methodology for quantitative assessment of linguistic convergence. In my thesis, I use wordlist data of the Caucasian languages as a proxy to the social and historical processes accompanying language change.
