Welcome to my personal website. Here you will primarily find information and posts related to my work at the University of Luxembourg, e.g., about computational sociolinguistics, multilingualism, natural language processing, or cultural theory. However, from time to time also thoughts about things that interest me as a professing part-time person may pop up, be it loud music, strategic boardgames, flippancy in general, or baking bread.
