Researching Folklore, Data Science and Cultural Evolution
I am a tenure-track researcher at the Meertens Institute of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. My research is interdisciplinary, adopting computational methods to study the field of humanities, in particular folkloristics. My research interests lie in the development of computational text analysis methods in the context of ethnology, anthropology, literary theory and cultural evolution (see my résumé for further details).
