I am a linguist with research interests in semantic and pragmatic theory.
From September 2015, I am a Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow at the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies, University of East Anglia, working on the project ‘Pragmatics in interaction: An exploration of miscommunication‘.
I completed my PhD (‘On the forms of conditionals and the functions of ‘if”) in 2015 in Linguistics in the Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics at the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Professor Kasia Jaszczolt. My PhD research was funded by the Newton Trust.
- June 2016: Article published in Journal of Pragmatics with Kasia Jaszczolt on motivating a pragmatic category of conditionals. ‘Towards a pragmatic category of conditionals‘. Journal of Pragmatics 98: 36-53.
- I recently gave a talk in April 2016, ‘(Mis)communication in interaction‘, outlining the motivations for this project at the Mind & Society 2.0 workshop at Manchester Metropolitan University.
- Earlier this year in January I was invited back to the University of Cambridge Linguistic Society where I talked about my views on ‘Reconceptualising Conditionals‘.
