Main Focus

In my research, I generally take a data-driven, empirical, and quantitative perspective on language change and language history, with a special focus on South-East Asian languages. In contrast to pure computational approaches, however, I try to keep my research closely connected to traditional historical linguistics and linguistic theory, following a computer-assisted rather than a computer-based framework of quantitative research in historical linguistics.
