Biography:  

My research interests are mainly in the philosophy of language (especially pragmatics) and epistemology. A few topics in the philosophy of language which I spend time thinking about are context-dependence (in its various forms), the semantics-pragmatics boundary, assertion, polysemy, and the semantics and pragmatics of English-language idioms. A few topics in epistemology which I spend time thinking about are the interrelations between knowledge, belief, and action, factive attitudes, doxastic norms, and the nature of semantic knowledge.

I earned my BA at McGill University in 2013, and my MA here at the University of Toronto in 2015.
