Hello! I am a postdoctoral scholar in the Laboratoire de Linguistique Formelle (LLF) at Paris 7-Diderot. I was previously a postdoc in the Questions at the Interfaces Unit at the University of Konstanz. I received my Ph.D in linguistics from the University of Chicago in June 2016.

As a linguist, my main interest lies in the study of meaning in its logical, pragmatic and socio-cultural components. In my dissertation, “Bridging the Gap: Intensifiers between Semantic and Social Meaning” I investigated how these different components interact with one another in the use of intensifiers like “totally” and the Italian suffix “-issimo”. I have now moved on to investigate three different phenomena from a similar perspective: discourse particles; subjective predicates; and pragmatic (im)precision. You can find out more about me and my past and current research interests on this site.
