I am currently a PhD candidate of Linguistics at the University of Ottawa, Canada.

My research interests are on  semantics, pragmatics, and  syntax and their interfaces.

My current projects span among a variety of topics such as  positive polarity items, exhaustivity and ignorance approached  from semantic as well as pragmatic perspectives.  Working on the interface between the two, I have been making efforts (without much success so far) to explain how one could inform the other.

These topics  related to  disjunction and indefinites overlap with other areas such as free-choice/no-choice and a multitude of types of specificity effects, all of which have forced me to work on modality, which I am enjoying immensely now.
