I'm Roland Mühlenbernd. I am senior researcher in the project Modeling Meaning-Driven Register Variation (SFB 1412 Register) at the Leibniz-Zentrum Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft (ZAS) in Berlin, Germany. I am primarily interested in the question of how individual behavior impacts conventions/norms on population-level, particularly with respect to communication and language.
For this purpose, I develop game-theoretic models and study them by addressing mathematical, computational and experimental approaches. I am particularly interested in questions within research on language change/evolution and pragmatics.
