[ Recent Activities ]: check out my presentations on formal diachronic semantics at San Antonio, TX and Yale .Click here for details.

I am a linguist with a specialization in semantics, with research focuses on the formal aspect of meaning. My research explores how languages differ in their surface forms but have common constraints at a deeper level. I have worked on the semantic properties of questions, focus, adjectives, and quantification.

For the past few years I have been exploring ways to combine formal semantics with historical linguistics in the new field called formal diachronic semantics. I have done research in the formal semantic analyses of grammaticalization paths of locative-to-aspect developments, and modes of lexical semantic change by using intensional logic.
