My research focuses mainly on philosophy of language. I am particularly interested in the meaning of generic sentences, definite descriptions, proper names, and conditionals, as well as foundational issues in formal semantics. I also work on related issues in epistemology and ethics. My DPhil thesis focused on the meaning of generic sentences, such as ‘Ravens are black’ and ‘Ducks lay eggs’. More specifically, I defended a modal theory of generic sentences based on some novel observations about how generics behave in complex linguistic environments.
