Research Agenda


Sociolinguistics investigates language use in society from a dynamic point of view including variation and change as major components. Research on multilingualism investigates the use of more than one language (e.g. code-switching) for communication between humans.

In my research, I analyze social and linguistic aspects of human-human and human-machine interactions (e.g., open-domain dialogue systems, HRI) across media (e.g. face-to-face, digital environments) through both qualitative and computational methods of analyses.

Research Interests: Multilingualism, (Computational) Sociolinguistics, Diversity and Inclusion in AI, Language Contact & Change, Human-Machine Interactions (e.g. open-domain chatbots, HRI), Personalization & Recommendation Systems, Digital Humanities, Computational Social Science & NLP, Social AI, E-Learning.
