Mr Christian Adam
Christian Adam joined the team as a postgraduate researcher to work between the fields of Learning Theory, Machine Learning and Cognitive Linguistics. His PhD studentship is funded by the Out of our Minds project.
Christian obtained his Bachelor’s degree in General Linguistics and German as well as his Master’s degree in Computational Linguistics at the University of Tübingen, Germany.
Working under the assumption that language is not different from any other learned skill, the main focus of his research here will be to investigate how linguistic phenomena can emerge from experience with language and general purpose learning mechanisms and how this can be modeled computationally using machine learning algorithms.
Christian has now returned to Tuebingen, Germany.
