I am a graduate student in Philosophy at UConn. My work is primarily in philosophy of language, philosophical logic, and metaphysics, with an emphasis on the language side of things.

Lately I have been thinking about a number of issues related to truth in the context of semantic theories, including the nature of explanations in semantic theories, the function of the truth predicate in natural languages and in semantic theories, and the viability of broadly deflationary theories of truth. I am currently working on a number of papers, including a paper on the semantics of the truth predicate and VP anaphora, a set of papers on the metaphysical relationships that might hold between meanings and truth-conditions, and a paper challenging some widespread assumptions in the literature on generics.

Feel free to contact me for drafts or to discuss any of these issues.
