Marcel Ruland

euI am interested in a wide variety of subjects, ranging from language evolution to computer science to philosophy of science (and anywhere in between). Interdisciplinary research is close to my heart.

I did a Bachelor in linguistics at Paderborn University, Germany. For my Bachelor’s thesis, supervised by Katharina Rohlfing and Eyke Hüllermeier, I looked at interactions between mothers and 3-month-old children and developed a method of distinguishing between meaningful and meaningless patterns in those interactions.

Currently, I am enrolled in a master in cognitive science and language at the University of Barcelona. For my master’s thesis I will develop an agent-based model to investigate the role and importance of a variety of factors on the development of linguistic complexity.
