I am a PhD candidate at the Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS (Utrecht University) in the Netherlands, under supervision of Yoad Winter. My PhD project roughly falls within the areas of (conceptual) semantics and psycholinguistics, and focuses on the effects of typicality on the interpretation of logical expressions such as and and each other, specifically in plural sentences. This research is part of the NWO-funded VICI project Between Logic and Common Sense: The Formal Semantics of Words.
Research interests: concepts, categorization and typicality, plurality, vagueness, reciprocity, conjunction
Personal interests: baking, black coffee, traveling, music, music & language, (baby) animals, literature, gender issues, nature-nurture debate, mathematics, pajamas
Currently reading: The Birth of the Mind: How a Tiny Number of Genes Creates the Complexities of Human Thought (Gary Marcus), Gödel, Escher, Bach (Douglas Hofstadter), The book of disquiet (Fernando Pessoa)
