Above: presenting single-type se- mantics at the 13th International Symposium of Cognition, Logic, & Communication (Riga, Dec. 2018)
I am a postdoctoral researcher in Ede Zimmermann’s Koselleck project Propositionalism in Linguistic Semantics at Goethe University Frankfurt. I received a PhD in philosophy from the Tilburg Center for Logic and Philosophy of Science (the Netherlands) in 2014.
My research lies in the intersection of philosophy of language, formal semantics/pragmatics, and logic.
In particular, I am working on a formal, empirically motivated account of how lexical meaning, communi-cative context, and agents' information interact in the determination of attitude content. This account addresses core issues at the philosophical interface of information and communication, e.g. intensionality, compositionality, and aboutness.
I have previously worked on the type-theoretic found-ations of formal semantics. I have recently developed an interest in computable interpretation and in the semantics of imagination and depiction reports.
