I'm a graduate student in the philosophy section of the MIT Department of Linguistics and Philosophy. My main interests are in the philosophy of language, especially in semantics and pragmatics. I also have interests in epistemology and decision theory. You can find my CV here.
My dissertation seeks to understand exactly how subjective modality depends on information and establishes a number of surprising facts about it. Subjective modals display important temporal asymmetries. Information also plays a double role: it not only provides the possibilities, but also contributes to how they are ranked. My dissertation offers a new theory of modality, one that explains these facts in a unified way.
I have also worked on the semantics of ability modals, deontic modals and on connections between the semantics of conditionals and principles of belief revision.
