Jonathan Dunn

Senior Lecturer in Linguistics, University of Canterbury
Visiting Scholar, Center for Spatial Data Science

Jonathan Dunn is a senior lecturer in linguistics at the University of Canterbury (NZL) where he uses computational models to understand spatial variation in language as part of the earthLings project (www.earthLings.io). The goal is to find out both (i) how large-scale population movements influence language and (ii) how information about human geography is available through language data.
