About me

I am a PhD student at the group for "Computer-Assisted Language Comparison" and mainly study the history and diversity of South American Languages. My main research topic will be the history of the South American Pano-Takana language family and its relation with other language families of the area. Methodologically, I focus on Bayesian methodology to model phylolinguistic and typological patterns, and on combining the comparative method with these computational approaches.
