I’m pleased to announced that I've been awarded a Humboldt Research Fellowship (hosted by Maribel Romero at the University of Konstanz), which I will take up in 2021. The project will look at the semantic composition and complementation patterns of (primarily factive) attitude reports.

My research focuses broadly on issues around selection, and how the interpretation and distribution of different types of complements (such as questions, declaratives, nominals) are constrained across different types of embedded environments. My work also investigates questions around how different types of meaning (such as presupposition, assertion, and truth-conditional meaning) are represented in the grammar and in the lexicon. I'm also interested in how experimental and quantitative methodologies can be used to inform theoretical questions about meaning and structure in language.

I received my PhD in Linguistics from the University of Pennsylvania in 2019 (supervised by Florian Schwarz). I'm now a Postdoctoral Research Fellow working with Maribel Romero on the semantics of questions as part of the Questions at the Interfaces project at the University of Konstanz.
