I am currently a lecturer in the philosophy department at the University of Illinois. I have recently finished my Ph.D. thesis in philosophy at the Australian National University. My dissertation project entitled "Monsters and communication: The semantics of contextual shifting and sensitivity" was on foundational issues in compositional semantics and context-dependence, under the supervision of David Chalmers, Jonathan Schaffer and Daniel Nolan--more specifically, it focused on problems that arise when context-sensitive expressions are embedded in various shifty environments, i.e. monstrous operators and the compositional value/assertoric content distinction.
