Bio

My original background is linguistics and literature (BA) and translation science (MA).

At TiU (DCC), I completed my PhD as a part of the interdisciplinary project "Producing Affective Language: content selection, message formulation and computational modelling" (ALP).  My research interests lie in the interplay of affect and language, and I am particularly interested in comparing self- and other-perceptions of affective language.
