Hi! I am a complex systems scientist working on mathematical models of language change, with subsidiary interests in models of language acquisition and quantitative typology. To find out more about my research, see some of my papers, talks or miscellaneous bricolage, or browse the tag cloud below.

To reach me, try henri.kauhanen [æt] manchester.ac.uk.

After undergraduate and masters studies at the University of Helsinki (Cognitive Science and English; minors in Mathematics, Philosophy and Latin), I completed a PhD in Linguistics at The University of Manchester (2018), where I currently work as an ESRC-funded postdoc.
