I’m a lecturer at Utrecht University trying to figure out the meaning of language, and the meaning of life in my spare time. Last year I defended my PhD thesis which you can find here. You can find out more about my research projects and other interests under the ‘Research’ tab above. This page also contains a list of papers and publications.

Apart from this, I sporadically blog about things that interest/move/amuse/anger me – including but not limited to social justice, food, art, feminism, religion and my latest unfinished sewing projects.

Current teaching:

  • Empirical Methods in Formal Semantics 2016/2017 (MA Linguistics, block 1)

Past teaching:

  • Semantiek 2015/2016 (with Yoad Winter and Rogier Wuijts)
  • Linguistic Modelling and Experimentation 2015/2016

      I know this is spam (the fact that it’s addressed to Scott is a dead giveaway!), but how can I research group nouns and not approve a comment that talks about a ‘gaggle of people’?
