hello!

I am a PhD student at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation in Amsterdam.

As a member of the Inquisitive Semantics group, I work on Quantification and modality in the realm of questions, under supervision of Floris Roelofsen. Within this project, I focus on quantification in formal semantics. I am also interested in dynamic logics of questions, which was the subject of my master's thesis.

As a volunteer at HackYourFuture, I teach programming to refugees.
