A photo of trees in Eugene, Oregon in the autumn.

I’m Tim* Gadanidis (/tɪm ˌgædəˈnidɪs/). I’m a PhD candidate in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Toronto. I do sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, and computational linguistics — a healthy mix of quantitative and qualitative methods. My dissertation is about the discourse of restaurant servers' narratives of personal experience, which you can read more about on the research page if you’re so inclined.

You can download my CV here.

* People who know me in person typically say “Tim”, but for my academic output, I sometimes go by Timothy, too — I have embraced variation by flipping a coin when I submit a paper or abstract, “Tim” for heads and “Timothy” for tails.
