I'm Roland Mühlenbernd.
I am a senior researcher at the Leibniz-Zentrum Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft (ZAS) in Berlin, Germany. I have a background in Computer Science and General Linguistics. My research focusses on the strategic choices of speakers and hearers in conversational situations and how these choices might impact language in the long term. For this purpose, I develop game-theoretic models and studies them by addressing mathematical, computational and experimental approaches. I am particularly interested in questions with respect to research on language change, language evolution and pragmatics.
