Hello! I am a lecturer and postdoc at the University of Pennsylvania, affiliated with the Linguistics Department.

In my work I investigate how people assemble and exchange meaning when they use language. I’m especially interested in exploring the dynamics whereby specific words affect the meaning of sentences and utterances; the processes enabling interlocutors to exchange different types of information; and the relationship between meaning interpretation and other activities that are central to human communication — such as building common ground, negotiating social identity and expressing agreement or disagreement.
