This year’s Overijssel PhD Award was awarded to Dong Nguyen for her thesis titled ‘Text as social and cultural data: a computational perspective on variation in text’.
Facebook, Microsoft and Google already had the privilege to host Dong Nguyen during her internships. Now, the UT shares Dong’s services with the Meertens Institute. Dong develops methods to analyse social media content. ‘I’m interested in patterns, not in individuals.’
