I’m a linguist currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Laboratoire de Sciences Cognitives et Psycholinguistique, a CNRS lab, at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris. I specialize in formal and experimental semantics and pragmatics. This means I use math and logic to model how humans transmit thoughts back and forth, often using experimental methods along the way to help refine the models.

Specific research topics include numerical expressions, distributivity and collectivity, plurality, questions, ignorance and grammar, and competition in human language and beyond. Click here to read more.

Apart from linguistics, I enjoy tinkering with Linux, learning about functional programming (like Haskell), and (when I have time) brewing beer. You can read about some of that stuff here.
