CNRS Researcher, Institut Jean-Nicod, Paris
My background is in mathematical logic (MA, U. Paris 7 – Jussieu), cognitive science (MA & PhD, Ecole Polytechnique) and philosophy (PhD, Stanford University). I work as a researcher for the Centre National de Recherche Scientifique since 2004 in the area of language and cognition. Most of my work is in philosophy of language and the semantics/pragmatics interface. I have been interested in indexicals, and context-dependence more generally. I have written on reference, what is said, semantic content, indirect discourse, the semantics/pragmatics distinction, predicates of personal taste, quantifier domain restriction, the relationship between necessary, a priori, and logical truth, as well as on disagreement, evaluative judgments, contextualism and relativism.
