Senior researcher and group leader, Language and Language Technology group
Application scientist, Centre for Big Data Analysis
Uni Research Computing, Bergen, Norway.


I am leader of the Language and Language Technology Group (LLTG), with a personal focus on the development and use of corpus linguistic methods and text mining for social science and humanities research. LLTG is a research and development group for language-related resources and technologies such as language corpora and treebanks, grammar development, and large-scale text mining.
We work with diverse corpora, including parallel corpora, learner corpora, speech corpora, and social media corpora. Application areas include social media analytics and corpus-based lexicography.

I am scientific co-ordinator of the NFR-funded NTAP project (2012-16), and was part of the NFR-funded LINGCLIM project (2013-2016), which synthesised corpus linguistics, text analytics, social network analysis and information visualization techniques to analyse climate change discourse in news and social media.

Since 2015 I have also worked as part of the Centre for Big Data Analysis to scale-up text and network analytics.
