I hold a bachelor’s degree in English with a specialisation in linguistics from the University of Gothenburg and a master’s degree in the English language from the University of Edinburgh.

During my previous studies, I have studied general linguistics, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. I specialised in the history of the English language and English historical linguistics, which led me to undertake my PhD project, in which I focus on the potential effects that modernised punctuation may have had on our understanding of Middle English.

During my PhD, I also became interested in digital humanities, especially as it concerns spelling variation and punctuation in historical documents. To pursue this interest, I have become familiar with scripting in Python, HTML, XML, and CSS.

I currently run the blog The Historical Linguist Channel and have been a part of its team since the start of the blog in 2017. The blog is aimed at the general public and aims to provide relatively short and easily understood explanations and discussions on historical linguistics. The blog is currently on hiatus, but I hope to start publishing new material soon.
