Short presentation

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. From January 2019 I hold a Burman fellowship at Uppsala University. I am a member of the Research Council of Norway's SAMKUL Research Network, "New Frontiers of Speech: Remaking Philosophy of Language for the Information Age." I received my PhD from UCLA in 2012 and docentship from University of Turku (Finland) in 2015.
