I am a linguist who likes computers. My main research topics include language variation across different communicative situations and the development of automatic tools so that we could better benefit from large, web-crawled corpora.

My ongoing projects include "A piece of news, an opinion or something else? Different texts and their detection from the multilingual Internet" funded by Emil Aaltonen foundation and "Massively multilingual modeling of registers in web-scale data" funded by Academy of Finland.
