Biography

Current projects:

CEPOL, Research Council of Norway, 2018-2021 (as sub-contractor). CEPOL is investigating the quantity and quality of bipartisan political communication on Twitter through a mix of automated social media analytics, close reading and surveys.

Curatorial Voice, British Academy Digital Research in the Humanities, 2018-2019 (as Co-I). This project seeks to demonstrate how new knowledge about the curation and the content of image collections can be generated through computer-assisted analysis of curatorial art descriptions.

Previously I led the Language and Language Technology Group (LLTG) at Uni Research in Bergen, and I was scientific co-ordinator of the NFR-funded NTAP project (2012-17) which synthesised corpus linguistics, text analytics, social network analysis and information visualization techniques to analyse climate change discourse in news and social media.
