Kort presentation

Detta stycke finns inte på svenska, därför visas den engelska versionen.

My research interests are in the philosophy of language and the philosophy of mind, with a focus on the nature of reference in language and thought. I received my Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of California, Los Angeles, in December 2012. I have held postdoctoral positions at the University of Oslo's Centre for the Study of Mind in Nature and at Umeå University, and in 2010-2011 I was a Faculty Lecturer at McGill University.
