Welcome to my webpage!

I am Professor of Experimental Pragmatics at the Section of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics at the University of Cambridge.

My focus is in the area of semantics and pragmatics, and in language learning by monolingual and bilingual children and adults. I am also interested in similarities and differences between neurotypical and neurodiverse people esp as regards language and cognition.

In the rest of this site you can find a list of my work and the courses that I teach as well as the topics I supervise.

If you are a parent of a bilingual child or a teacher or other professonial working with bilingual families, you might want to have a look at WeSpeakMulti, and the Cambridge Bilingualism Network.

If you are a secondary school student interested in Linguistics, do consider taking part in the annual Essay Prize competition hosted by Trinity College Cambridge.
