About Me

I am a linguist working on formal semantics, and its interfaces with pragmatics and syntax.


Currently, I am a post-doctoral fellow, working on the DFG research grant 'Asymmetries in presupposition projection and the nature of meaning' (PI: Jacopo Romoli), at Heinrich-Heine Universität in Düsseldorf.

Prior to that, I received my PhD from the Department of Linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania (2023), where I was advised by Florian Schwarz.

My current research interests focus on whether the fact that speakers interpret language incrementally affects the way they understand sentences (e.g. what they take the presuppositions of a sentence to be). I investigate this topic by combining the rigorous development of formal theories of incremental interpretation with psycholinguistic experimentation, to test the fine-grained predictions of said theories.


I also have interests in the syntax-semantics interface, where I have worked on the syntax and semantics of Agreement in Western Armenian and what this phenomenon can tell us about processes of pseudo-incorporation.

Furthermore, 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.
