Computational Language Measures

The Computational Language Measures approach allows individuals to answer questions freely with words that are quantified and analysed using AI (including Natural language processing and Machine learning). This approach complement traditional closed-ended rating scales as the method enables us to measure, describe and differentiate well between psychological constructs (see Figure below).

I’m a researcher in Psychology interested in measuring psychological constructs with words and text responses analyzed with AI. In particular I’m interested in how this method can be used in clinical settings to assessment mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. I’m also interested in researching well-being, harmony in life and sustainable living. I’m currently funded for an international postdoc at the Computer Science Department at Stony Brook University and the University of Copenhagen.
