As part of the Coronavirus Discourses project the University of Nottingham is working on a software prototype enabling researchers to perform privacy-preserving linguistic analysis of personal data, allowing for a deeper interpretation of the way people communicated during the pandemic.
Working closely with researchers, you will develop a plugin for the Chrome Web browser. This plugin will allow for the passive analysis of text data that is displayed in the browser when the user is visiting specific websites. The plugin will collect data in the background and collate it in a storage format that the user can export, inspect, and send to researchers via their preferred e-mail application.
