I'm a PhD candidate in the philosophy section of the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In my dissertation, I study the theory of relative computability from the perspective of the logic and metaphysics of modality. I also have interests in philosophy of logic, philosophy of language, and epistemology.

Together with Virginia Schultheis (and formerly with Kevin Richardson), I also run LLaMM, a reading group on logic, language, metaphysics, and mind. To receive updates about LLaMM, sign up here or send me a quick e-mail (address below).

I also help out with the organization of PIKSI-Boston.

My name is pronounced muh-TEA-iss YE-nny (IPA: ­ˌmaˈtiːas ˈjenːi).
