Short Bio: 
I am a computational linguist specializing in corpus linguistics, the extraction and analysis of linguistic structures in digital text collections. My main area of interest is the syntax-semantics interface, where meaning and knowledge about the world are mapped onto lexical choice and syntactic structure in language-specific ways. I am also involved in the development of tools and standards for corpora in Linguistics and the Digital Humanities, especially for the Coptic language of Hellenistic Egypt.
