I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Salzburg. Previously, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at ArgLab, within the Nova Institute of Philosophy of the New University of Lisbon. I attained a PhD in Philosophy in October 2018, at the Arché Philosophical Research Center, in the University of St Andrews.
I work primarily on the philosophy of language, semantics and metaphysics. My current research centres on the way we structure information within discourse, and how attending to information structure can resolve a range of philosophical problems.
(To appear). 'Triggering Domain Restriction'. Mind & Language. Online First.Abstract: It is well known that occurrences of sentences such as ‘Every bottle is empty’ will sometimes be understood relative to a subset of the set of all bottles in the universe. Much has been written about what mechanism should be used to model this phenomenon of domain restriction. However, comparatively little attention has been paid to the question of when domain restriction is triggered. I will begin by challenging a recent partial answer to this question. I will then develop my own partial answer based on observations pertaining to information structure.
