My name is Nate Young, and I am a Marie Skłodowska-Curie research fellow at The Department of Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies at the University of Oslo. I also work as a lecturer at the Department of Scandinavian Languages at Uppsala University. I have a Ph.D. in Linguistics from Queen Mary, University of London.
I work on innovative speech-language technology for the Nordic languages, and I do research on language variation and change in Scandinavia, focusing on big data and hyper-scalability.
My formal education is in "Labovian" variationist sociolinguistics, a quantitative field that mainly concerns itself with understanding variation and change in the sound system of a language.
