My name is Kim Pedersen Phillips.

I am a doctoral student at the University of Oslo and at the University of St Andrews. I am taking a Joint Degree.

I work on issues at the intersection of epistemology and the philosophy of language. The central concern of my research is to figure out how hearers acquire knowledge of what speakers say to them on particular occasions. Are the grounds of knowledge of what is said perceptual in nature, or are they inferential? I tend towards the latter.
