I'm a DPhil student in philosophy at the University of Oxford. I mainly work on philosophy of language.
In my thesis, I explore connections between presuppositions and context-dependence in language, and I examine what we can learn from so-called metalinguistic uses.
My supervisors are Paul Elbourne and Ofra Magidor.
Philosophy of Language in Progress
In Michaelmas Term 2019, Matt Hewson and I gave a class together, entitled `Assertion and Knowledge.' The aim was to look at the relationship between the two and at the implications of that relationship for a variety of issues in epistemology and philosophy of language.
Lecture 1: Two Accounts of Assertion [notes here]
Lecture 2: Assertion and the Logic of Knowledge [notes here]
Lecture 3: Assertion and Testimony [notes here]
Lecture 4: Assertions and Lies. [notes here]
At Oxford, I have also taught tutorials in philosophy of language, as well as metaphysics and epistemology, and I was teaching assistant for introductory logic.
At Humboldt University, I gave tutorials in logic as well as introduction to philosophy.
