I am a linguist with a specialization in semantics, with research focuses on the formal aspect of meaning. My research explores how languages differ in their surface forms but have common constraints at a deeper level. I have worked on the semantic properties of questions, focus, adjectives, and quantification. Besides formal semantics, my research also touches upon Chinese historical linguistics and philosophy of language. I am especially interested in how to combine formal semantics with historical linguistics, my two favorite areas of linguistics. You can also visit my work page here.
