My research interests are in semantics of natural language and the semantics-syntax interface. I am particularly interested in the interplay of semantics, syntax, and pragmatics in the interpretation of context dependent expressions, with a focus on the expression of modal meaning in conversation. These theoretical interests are complemented with an experimental perspective, which includes corpus annotation, corpus mining, and psycholinguistic experiments.
