I work in the Lund University Humanities Laboratory as a local coordinator and expert in the national consortium for language technology, Swe-Clarin. The work consists of consultations and collaborations with researchers and research groups. For example, one environment is DiACL (headed by Gerd Carling), where I contribute with visialisations and analyses of lexicohistorical language data. I also participated in the Pufendorf DATA theme as one of the leaders for the thread Discovery from the written word. Another line of work investigates how pitch accent in speech and head and eye-brow movements jointly highlight information. As an extension, this has led to a successful grant application from the Swedish Research Council, resulting in the project The production of prosodic prominence: integrating bodily and articulatory gestures (House, Ambrazaitis). A fourth project, initially co-funded by the strategic research area for e-Science, eSSENCE, focuses on information extraction from scientific articles in the area of epidemiology (Björk). This has lead to an extension in the form of another successful application; in this case from VINNOVA. From 2019, I work in the RWAAI environment, which is concerned with documentation of the languages and cultures in Mainland Southeast Asia and Infdia. Furthermore, I work with research of articulator movements during speech using the articulography facilities in the Lab. I also develop and maintain the software Scriptlog, which is used for research in writing.
