I am a researcher in the field of computational linguistics at the CLiPS Research Center, which is part of the Department of Linguistics at the University of Antwerp. My work focuses mostly on author profiling and extracting deeper linguistic features to use for text classification. Apart from that, I have done research on the automatic semantic categorization of noun compounds. Due to a research stay in South Africa, I have also taken an interest in the Afrikaans language.
