Research Interests

As a formal semanticist, my research is concerned with the question of how utterances receive meaningful interpretations in systematic interplay with form and contextual information. In my research, I am concerned with the semantics of negation and how it interacts with anaphoric dependiencies in discourse. This concerns propositional anaphora that are sensitive to the polarity of the clause introducing their antecedent, polarity ellipsis, and anaphora to antecedents introduced in non-veridical contexts more generally.
