Just a picture of me, you're not missing much
As of October 2016, I am a fourth-year graduate student in the Cognitive Science department at Johns Hopkins. I studied math for a while until I realized I was more interested in the domains I was modeling than in the tools for modeling them.

Research Interests

Context in semantics: I'm interested in formal models of what linguists have called "context" and its role in natural language interpretation. Currently, I am working on the context-dependence of modals and counterfactual conditionals.

Computational linguistics: I'm also generally interested in tools for creating and evaluating linguistic hypotheses on large and/or naturalistic data sources. I'm working with others in the Cognitive and Computer Science departments on a method for quickly annotating semantic properties of predicate arguments.
