I am currently a Juan de la Cierva fellow working with the Formal Linguistics Research Group at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. I finished my graduate studies in 2010 in the philosophy department at the University of Texas at Austin, where I focused on topics in the philosophy of language and semantics. My research concerns the interaction between semantics and pragmatics, looking at the way the interpretation of words is influenced by context. In particular, I have written on the relation between extra-linguistic context sensitivity of the sort exhibited by indexicals and demonstratives (I, you, now, that, etc.) and linguistic context sensitivity of the sort exhibited by, for example, anaphoric pronouns (he, she, it). My dissertation, Presuppositional Indexicals, argues that the semantics of indexicals are best understood using dynamic models of linguistic context sensitivity normally reserved for anaphoric pronouns. My dissertation was completed under the direction of David Beaver in linguistics, R. Mark Sainsbury in philosophy, and, unofficially, François Recanati in linguistics and philosophy.
