I mostly work in the intersection of philosophy of language, logic, and linguistics. I’m especially interested in issues to do with conversation and information. I also work in epistemology, on things to do with knowledge, justification and their relationship to what is normal.

I did my PhD at Rutgers University. Before that, I did a BPhil at the University of Oxford and an undergraduate degree at the University of Edinburgh.
