From September 2012 until August 2013, I am collaborating with Harald Baayen at the University of Tübingen on a project investigating language variation by means of analyzing tongue and lip movement during speech. This one-year post-doc project is funded by a Rubicon grant of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).
I have received my PhD degree cum laude from the University of Groningen (Center for Language and Cognition Groningen, Department of Information Science) on June 28, 2012 after the public defense of my dissertation A Quantitative Approach to Social and Geographical Dialect Variation. My PhD supervisors were Professor John Nerbonne of the University of Groningen and Professor R. Harald Baayen of the University of Tübingen and the University of Alberta. The reading committee consisted of Professor Jack Chambers, Professor Mark Liberman and Professor Dirk Speelman.
