Research information:

My research focuses on formal semantics. I am interested in the composition of meaning in natural language. I am also interested in links between semantics and philosophy and psycholinguistics. My research topics include issues in modality, conditionals, counterfactuals, domain restriction, tense and aspect, the interpretation of pronouns and indexicality.

Research information:

My research investigates how acquiring a second language affects a person's processing in the first language. I have combined methods of behaviour and neuroimaging to show that bilinguals are (subconsciously) more sensitive to sentential information to more efficiently disambiguate a word's meaning.

Research information:

I'm interested broadly in the question of what makes linguistic creatures like us humans different from non-linguistic creatures, and in what ways the structure of their communication systems differ from that of human language, which appears to be an evolutionarily unique cognitive faculty. More narrowly I'm interested in how formal operations yield the unity and variation in the composition of sentences (syntax) we find in the languages of the world.
