Nick Thieberger is an Associate Professor in Linguistics. He is particularly interested in developing methods for making better records of all of the world's many languages. This involves training new students in concepts of linguistic data management, the creation of new tools, and the use of existing records for new research.

He has worked with the Pacific and Regional Archive for Digital Sources in Endangered Cultures (PARADISEC) since its inception in 2003, it is an archive that holds 12,000 hours of audio records in 1229 languages. He built the Digital Daisy Bates pages using TEI XML to display 23,000 pages of manuscript material in Australian Indigenous languages. He wrote a grammar of Nafsan (central Vanuatu) and continues to work on a dictionary of that language.
