Academic interests

I am interested in extracting testable empirical predicitons from pragmatic theories. The ultimate goal of my research is to help establish links between algorithmic- and computational-level explanations for how we understand language in context. I am particularly interested in studying highly context-sensitive forms of pragmatic language use such as figurative language (irony, metaphor, hyperbole, imprecision), adhoc implicatures and expressive adjectives. I want to understand the cognitive mechanisms and representations involved in processing these phenomena, as well as how their comprehension develops with age.
