I am a researcher in linguistics, more specifically in semantics and pragmatics. My research focuses on phenomena at the interface between linguistic meaning and general reasoning, in particular questions, implicatures, and gradable adjectives. My work combines psycholinguistic approaches (studying linguistic behavior both in adults and in children), traditional formal approaches inspired by logic, and quantitative probabilistic modeling.
I currently work on the LMT project “Efficient communication under uncertainty: Vagueness and Implicatures” with Axel Holvoet at Vilnius University. I was previously working with Benjamin Spector and Paul Egré at ENS (Paris), and with Floris Roelofsen at the University of Amsterdam.
