I am a researcher in linguistics, most specifically in semantics and pragmatics. My research focuses on phenomena at the interface between linguistic meaning and general reasoning, more specifically 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 modeling.
I currently share my time between the LMT project “Efficient communication under uncertainty: Vagueness and Implicatures” with Axel Holvoet at Vilnius University, and the ANR project “Probabilistic Semantics and Pragmatics” headed by Benjamin Spector and Paul Egré at ENS (Paris). I was previously working with Floris Roelofsen at the University of Amsterdam.
