Research topic: Computational linguistics; learning and learnability of natural language

Research methods: Computer simulation of grammar induction tasks; Minimum Description Length (MDL); Markov-Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods

Main projects in the lab include:

  1. Comparison of grammatical systems based on the MDL learners they induce
  2. Induction of lexicon and phonological constraints in Optimality Theory
  3. Induction of phonological rule systems and acquisition of rule interactions
