I'm a Ph.D. student in the Department of Linguistics at Cornell University.
My research focuses on the semantics and pragmatics of natural language. In particular, I am interested in different types of meaning (asserted, presupposed, not-at-issue, etc.) and how they interact with sentence- and discourse-level phenomena. My research is rooted in traditional linguistic theory, but looks to incorporate insights from neighboring fields, including philosophy, psychology, mathematics, and computer science, in order to refine and deepen our understanding of linguistic phenomena.
I edited Semantics and Linguistic Theory 23, and SALT 24.
I coordinated the Semantics Reading Group for three years.
I was president of the Cornell Linguistics Circle for the 2014-2015 term.
Last but not least, I represent the Social Sciences as a voting member of the Graduate and Professional Student Assembly.
I received my B.A. in Linguistics and Chinese from Carnegie Mellon University in May 2010.
