Hello, my name is Becca Morris and I am the Managing Editor at The LINGUIST List.
I am also responsible for posting Career announcements, managing our Social Media and boosting
announcements, and I am also the Invoicing Officer.
I am currently a PhD student in Computational Linguistics at Indiana University. I received my MA in Computational Linguistics from IU, and my BA in Linguistics from the University of Florida. I am currently working on my qualifying exams one of which will focus on corpus linguistics and the other on improving Swedish dependency parsing.
My second qual will lead into my dissertation which will focus on improving Swedish dependency parsing and comparing/contrasting Swedish parsing results.
In my spare time I enjoy listening to music, playing video games, and spending time with my cat. I am also trying to maintain the Swedish I learned during my semester abroad at Linköpings universitet.
