Personlig profil

Information om forskning och undervisning

I am an evolutionary biologist fascinated by linguistic variation in time and space. My interests concern how changes in linguistic variation lead to differentiation of groups, and on the other hand, how interaction of these groups affect their differentiation. I am applying population genetic methods to linguistic data, and focusing on three different levels of variation: languages, dialects, and spoken language in cities. 

Major interests

  • Multidisciplinary research
  • Human past
  • Language change in time and place, linguistic divergence and convergence
