Igor Yanovich is the project leader of an Emmy Noether junior research group hosted at the University of Tübingen. His work spans computational statistics, historical linguistics and theoretical linguistics, and includes collaborations with geneticists making use of mathematical evolutionary methods to perform inference about the linguistic and extra-linguistic past. Igor completed undergraduate studies at the Lomonosov State University and graduate studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He held postdoctoral positions at the University of Tübingen, including at the interdisciplinary Center for Advanced Study “Words, Bones, Genes, Tools”, and the Dept. of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University; his research stays included those at the Dept. of Translation and Language Sciences at the University Pompeu Fabra and the Dept. of Life Sciences and Biotechnology at the University of Ferrara, out of which the current project stems.
