    Research Interests

    I am interested in language, mind, and reality: semantic accounts  of natural languages including puzzling phenomena such as vagueness and attitude ascription, theories of consciousness, representation and propositional attitudes, and explanations of ontological commitment and its connection to existence.

    I grew up in Connecticut, studied at Princeton and Stanford, and then taught at Cornell, the University of Michigan, and now Stanford once again.
