I am assistant professor of Computational Linguistics at Utrecht University, currently in détachement from my researcher position at CNRS (the National Center of Scientific Research). After receiving a PhD in Linguistics from the University of California Los Angeles, I worked at the University of Trento in Marco Baroni's group.

Research interests

My work in semantics employs both formal and computational methods. My core interests are in semantic compositionality at the lexical level: how meanings of words interact to derive the meanings of phrases and sentences. Specific research topic include: 
  • mathematical and cognitive aspects of distributional semantics
  • (lexical) semantic typology
  • integrating formal and distributional models of semantics
  • quantification
Publications: 2020
  • Timothee Mickus, Denis Paperno, Mathieu Constant, and Kees van Deemter. What do you mean, BERT? Assessing BERT as a Distributional Semantics Model. Proceedings of the Society for Computation in Linguistics: Vol. 3 , Article 34.
