Welcome!


I am a fifth year Ph.D. student at the Linguistics Department of UMass Amherst. My research is in formal semantics and pragmatics, with a special focus on quantification and plurality related phenomena. Topics that I have worked on include distributivity, numerals, comparatives and superlatives, focus association and ignorance implicatures. Lately I have been working on amount relatives and other non-canonical means to express quantity.

In addition, I have ongoing collaborated with Ethan Poole on the semantic properties of NPI licensing conditions from an experimental perspective, with Athulya Aravind on the acquisition of weak implicatures, and with Stefan Keine and Ethan Poole on certain aspects of the semantics of tough-constructions.
