I carry out research in three main areas and I develop and use a range of data-driven methodologies across the three strands

Historical Linguistics

Data-driven, corpus-based research on pragmatic language change in Italian, mainly caused by media influence

Language, Media & Society

Researching how language use reveals latent assumptions and circulates implicit ideologies in media and society

Digital Humanities

Methodological research on unveiling and understanding patterns in big data, transparency and replicability
