About

I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Institut Jean-Nicod and member of the LINGUAE group at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, France.

My research is concerned with the formal semantics and pragmatics of natural language, where I use experimental methods to improve the empirical grounding of logical analyses. I am particulary interested in a collection of phenomena somewhere at the intersection of semantics and pragmatics, logic, and philosophy:

  • Plurals
  • Modals and Conditionals
  • Multivalent Logic
  • Imprecision Phenomena

I received a doctorate from the University of Vienna in 2015. My dissertation Aspects of Homogeneity in the Semantics of Natural Language investigates a particular property of plural predication, which causes sentences to fail to be determinately true or false, and attempts to analyse a number of other linguistic phenomena in its terms.
