Research interests

I am a computational linguist interested in semantics, or how meaning works in natural languages, especially regarding words such as red or salmon (as opposed to words like every or not); I often work within the framework of distributional semantics. Topics I am currently working on are anchoring meaning to the external world (reference), accounting for semantic composition (e.g., from red and salmon to red salmon), and linking distributional semantics to a broader semantic and linguistic theory.

KeywordsComputational linguistics / Natural Language Processing; linguistics; computational semantics; semantic theory; distributional semantics; lexical semantics; compositional semantics; language resources; computational, quantitative and data-intensive approaches to language.
