Søren Wichmann studied at University of Copenhagen, where he finished a Ph.D in 1996 on the typologically oriented description of the Otomanguean language Tlapanec (southern Mexico). In the past he has held appointments at University of Copenhagen, Danish Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, and Universidad de Sonora, and he is currently simultaneously a postdoctoral fellow at Leiden University and MPI-EVA (the latter since 2003). His research focuses on various aspects of historical linguistics (e.g., lexical borrowing patterns, script interpretation, quantitative methods, simulation methodologies), on the documentation of different Mesoamerican languages, and on the typology of case marking.
