Mike Kestemont


Mike Kestemont (www.mike-kestemont.org) currently is a postdoctoral research fellow for the Research Foundation of Flanders at the University of Antwerp (Belgium), where he works in the research group for literary history, as well as the CLiPS computational linguistics research lab. Mike's research focuses on Digital Humanities, in particular computational text analysis and stylometry for historic texts. His PhD tackled the problem of computational authorship attribution (in medieval Dutch literature), a problem which he continues to study in his current research (also for other medieval languages, like Latin). Mike is actively involved in many DH initiatives in the Low Countries and regularly publishes his research results in journals in the (Digital and Less Digital) Humanities. A recent, accessible documentary on his stylometric research can viewed online: http://vimeo.com/70881172.
