Supervisors

Research interests

Philosophy of Language, Semantics, Subjective Language, Contextualism, Semantic Relativism

Research Overview

My area of research is in philosophy of language and formal semantics focusing on subjective language. Particularly, I explore the meanings of predicates of personal taste (tasty, fun, etc.) and expressives (ouch, damn, fuckhead, etc.). I hope to develop a novel hybrid semantic theory to account for these phenomena, I call this view Expressive-Relativism.

Education

I got my BA and MA at the University of Manchester. My PhD research is funded by the School of Social Sciences.
