About

Picture of Peter Sutton I am currently working at HHU Düsseldorf as a member of a project on frame based approaches to countability as part of the SFB 991 project 'The Structure of Representations in Language, Cognition, and Science'.

I completed a PhD in philosophy at King's College London. In my thesis, I developed a probabilistic approach to modelling vague natural language predicates and applied this approach to some philosophical problems in the vagueness literature.

My research interests include: probabilistic approaches to semantics and pragmatics, the mass-count distinction, vagueness, context-sensitivity, formal semantics and the philosophy of information.

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