My research deals with the analysis of spontaneous language samples. I work with written language mostly, but some of my work also deals with transcriptions of spoken language. My main research projects can be categorized along these lines:
- Forensic linguistics, including authorship attribution, profiling and plagiarism detection
- Computational Linguistics for the analysis of Code-Switched data
- Health informatics (information extraction from patient generated data)
- Clinical NLP, the use of NLP in language assessment for a clinical purpose (diagnose, monitor conditions affecting language patterns)
