Starting January 2021, I will be a Junior Professor for Philosophy of Information and Communication at Ruhr University Bochum.


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.
