[ New ]: I'll present my research in the formal semantics of the locative>>aspect grammaticalization, October 12-14, 2017 at Yale University.

[ Recent Activities ]: check out my presentations on formal historical semantics at the International Conference on Historical Linguistics 23, San Antonio, Texas, July 31-August 4, 2017. The slides are available on my Papers page. 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.
