Home / Dr. Johannes Dellert

Johannes Dellert recently completed his dissertation in general linguistics while working as a member of the EVOLAEMP project, after undergraduate studies in computational linguistics and computer science. His postdoctoral research currently focuses on machine-assisted approaches to historical linguistics and typology, and on exploring the possibilities of interpretable machine learning for robust analysis of language varieties in the absence of large datasets for training. During his time at the Center, he was coordinating the continued expansion of the NorthEuraLex database, and is working on a prototype of a new system for machine-assisted etymological theory development, supported by intramural funding as well as a RiSC grant by the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts of the State of Baden-Württemberg.
