Research

My recent projects focus on presupposition projection, both from theoretical and experimental perspectives. I also have a more general interest in redundancy phenomena, where I've investigated cases like Hurford disjunctions/conditionals. Moreover, I have undertaken projects on the semantics pseudo-incorporation and the syntax of agreement in Western Armenian.
