Matt received his Ph.D. from the Theologische Fakultät at the University of Leipzig for the application of distributional semantics to the interpretation of the Greek New Testament. Before joining the Digital Humanities Team, he worked at the Scholars’ Lab at the University of Virginia and in the DARIAH project at the Göttingen Centre for Digital Humanities at the University of Göttingen, Germany. His current research interests include the application of machine learning, and especially neural networks, for semantic information extraction in ancient texts, the improvement of parameter testing methods for computational semantic analysis, and the expansion of the methods used in his dissertation to other languages and to multi-lingual analysis.
