Research Interests    

I work mostly in the philosophy of language and metaphysics. Most recently I’ve been working on metasemantics, or foundational semantics, and its relation to formal semantics. I am particularly interested in how to think about intentionality (or abountness) in light of the pronouncements of contemporary semantic theory.
