I am currently working at HHU Düsseldorf as the postdoctoral researcher on the project ‘Individuation of Eventualities and Abstract Things‘, a project funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

Some of the topics that interest me are: the semantics of counting and measuring constructions (both in the nominal and verbal domains), vagueness, the semantics of case marking (especially in Finnic languages), context-sensitivity, and the philosophy of information.

Some of the frameworks I have worked with are: probabilistic approaches to semantics and pragmatics, richly typed semantic theories (including Type Theory with Records), frame-based semantic theories.

Details of the funding for my research and my teaching experience can be found in my CV.
