My name is Martin Schweinberger and I am a Lecturer in Applied Linguistics at the University of Queensland (UQ) in Australia as well as a part-time Associate Professor in the AcqVA-Aurora Center at the Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø. At UQ, I am co-directing the Language Technology and Data Analysis Laboratory (LADAL) together with Michael Haugh.
In addition, I am currently board member of The International Computer Archive of Modern and Medieval English (ICAME) and steering committee member of the Australian Text Analytics Platform – an ARCD funded project aimed at establishing a text analytics infrastructure in Australia. I consider myself a language data scientist and quantitative linguist specialized in corpus linguistics and quantitative, computational analyses of text and speech.
Regarding my background, I have a PhD in English linguistics and I studied at the National University of Ireland, Galway, as well as Universität Kassel where I graduated in 2008 with an MA in English Philology, Philosophy, and Psychology. After my MA, I remained in Kassel for a short while but soon moved to Hamburg where I worked on and later received my PhD.
