I am a 3rd-year PhD candidate in the department of philosophy at the University of Connecticut. Before that I did my undergraduate at the University of Toronto.

My primary areas of interest are in formal semantics and pragmatics,  philosophy of language, and logic.

My research focuses on how we represent notions of agency, normativity, and action in natural language. In other words, I'm interested in understanding how we talk about `what to do'.

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


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