Hi! Welcome to the webpage of a researcher interested in linguistics and its connections to cognitive psychology.

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.IMG_7674-1

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
