My name is Jason Timm. I am part academic researcher and part data scientist. I received my PhD in Linguistics from the University of New Mexico in December 2016, where I trained as a corpus linguist and a psycholinguist.

My research interests include computational & corpus-based approaches to (1) the mental lexicon, (2) lexical innovation, and (3) the cognitive and social mechanisms underlying processes of language change. [Dissertation]

More broadly, I am interested in:

  • the application of statistical computing to large text corpora;
  • the integration of corpus methods and geographic information systems;
  • the development of open source tools for text analysis; and
  • the application of corpus & computational methods in the social sciences and humanities.

I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and mostly just bicycle about.
