I am a theoretical linguist specializing primarily in semantics and pragmatics. I received my PhD in linguistics in 2000 from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, with a dissertation on ellipsis and coordination, supervised by Kyle Johnson and Angelika Kratzer. The phenomena I have studied since include indefinites, negation, noun phrase modification, scalar particles, parasitic gaps, degree constructions, island effects, modified numerals, quantity implicatures, ignorance inferences, questions, and presuppositions.

In the McGill Department of Linguistics, I am a member of the Semantics Research Group. For more information about my research and student supervision, please see the links above.
