Hello, I'm Danny! 👋🏻 I am a linguist.
I'm a postdoctoral fellow in the Alberta Language Technology Laboratory (ALT Lab) at the University of Alberta. As part of an SSHRC grant on "21st Century Tools for Indigenous Languages", I work with the Cree language communities (especially ᓀᐦᐃᔭᐍᐏᐣ nêhiyawêwin or Plains Cree) to develop digital tools for their language, such as smart online dictionaries, spell checkers, and automated text parsers.
I am also a member of the Algonquian Components Project, a National Science Foundation–funded database of morphological components in Algonquian languages, which uses the Digital Linguistics infrastructure.
