I'm a Lecturer in philosophy at the University of Edinburgh. My research interests center around philosophical logic, philosophy of language, and formal semantics. (I've recently edited a book for Oxford University Press on the foundations of formal semantics entitled The Science of Meaning.)

I did my PhD in philosophy at the Australian National University. My dissertation project was on issues at the foundations of natural language semantics concerning compositionality, assertoric content, and context-dependence, under the supervision of David Chalmers. I'm also interested in traditional philosophical problems, and in the deployment of formal methods in the service of addressing such problems, so think about puzzles and paradoxes having to do with truth, knowledge, necessity, grounding, time, minds, etc.
