My dissertation focused on propositional anaphora and some related issues. Right now, I'm working on investigating the behavior of propositional anaphora crosslinguistically, among other things. Some of my other projects include work on tautologies and contradictions, a new angle on structural equation modeling for counterfactuals, and continuations for comparatives.
