I’m a Hungarian linguist with a quantitative focus. I’m interested in learning and change in cultural systems. I use both high resolution methods (like lab experiments) and low resolution ones (like corpus linguistics and cross-cultural data).

  • I run experiments to find out how we learn language in a variety of settings, including some uncommon ones.
  • I use webcorpora and ethnographic data to analyse variation and change in cultural systems, including work with anthropologist and linguist colleagues on smaller communities in Africa and Australia.
  • I also have a handful of data piping and visualising things up on github.

I work at the Cognitive Science Department at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. I have worked on infant development at the Cognitive Development Center at Central European University, on language evolution in Fiona Jordan‘s EXCD lab in Bristol, and on the social and personal history of words in Janet Pierrehumbert and Jennifer Hay’s Wordovators project in New Zealand.

This site has an up-to-date list of publications and links to me everywhere else, including my CV and Résumé.
