About Me

I am a fifth-year PhD student in the Department of Linguistics, at the University of Pennsylvania.

My research interests are in formal semantics and pragmatics, especially presupposition projection. I also have interests in the syntax-semantics interface. My advisor is Florian Schwarz. I also work with Julie Legate, Anna Papafragou, and Jacopo Romoli.

I am affiliated with Florian Schwarz's Experimental Study of Meaning Lab.

I did my undergraduate degree at the University of Edinburgh, where I studied English Language and Literature.
