About me

I do research in the field of anticipatory anthropology. My work is at the crossroads of anthropology, linguistics, and sociology. I am particularly interested in anticipating social and cultural features – by analyzing how people talk about future facts/scenarios. I use a qualitative and quantitative approach with different methodologies, especially natural language processing (NLP) for corpus linguistics and quantitative analysis of large-scale socio-cultural data (culturomics).
