About

I am a Research Associate on the ERC project 'Truth and Semantics', at the University of Bristol. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Salzburg. I attained a PhD in Philosophy in 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 interests include: information structure, quantifier expressions, quantifier variance, verbal and metalinguistic disputes, slurs, semantic paradoxes and the meaning of natural language truth predicates.
