I am a PhD candidate in the department of philosophy at the University of Connecticut. Before that I did my undergraduate at the University of Toronto


My main interests are in formal semantics and pragmatics,  philosophy of language, and logic.

In particular I am interested in how natural language represents agency, action, and normativity. I'm writing my dissertation on this very topic under the supervision of Magdalena Kaufmann and Stewart Shapiro.

In addition to my research in semantics, pragmatics and all things language I have an interest in, whenever time permits, normative ethics and philosophy of mind. 

I am a member of the UCONN Logic Group and the UCONN Meaning Group.
