Biography

I completed my PhD at the University of St Andrews in 2011. The topic of my dissertation was the semantics and pragmatics of definite descriptions and my advisors were Prof. Herman Cappelen (St Andrews), Prof. Jonathan Schaffer (Rutgers) and Prof. Josh Dever (Austin). Before coming to Edinburgh, I spent a year as a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the department of philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University.

My current research focuses on issues concerning the nature of presuppositions, how to account for truth conditional meaning that is purportedly underdetermined by linguistic meaning, and the semantics of proper names.
