I am an independent scholar (applied linguistics) and entrepreneuer, and I provide academic and business training, including lectures, teacher training, editing, and reviewing. My tech company Repindex, has two parts. Archive and Search has over 14,400 feeds with an archive of 32.7bn articles and 36.6bn words, accumulating since 2010. This can be used for many purposes. Document Inspection is used to check contracts and other documents and can be used for education.

Academically, I publish in applied linguistics and I retain a keen interest in Classics and the Nordic languages.
