I am currently leading an Emmy Noether research group based at LMU Munich, within the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy.
My research interests span topics in philosophical and mathematical logic, philosophy of language, and natural language semantics and pragmatics.
I am interested in the way we think, infer, and communicate in the presence of uncertainty, in particular with regards to the role of questions, disjunctions, conditionals and modals in thought and communication.
Another central topic of my research is the way in which logic can be extended to questions, and how doing so yields a more general perspective on logic which opens up many new possibilities. This is the topic of my forthcoming monograph Questions in Logic (based on my dissertation).  
In collaboration with Jeroen Groenendijk and Floris Roelofsen, I have developed Inquisitive Semantics, a logical framework which allows for a unified analysis of the semantics of statements and questions. I am a co-author of the inquisitive semantics textbook.
My work connects with a range of topics in logic (modal logic, intuitionistic logic, dependence logic, dynamic epistemic logic, truth-maker semantics, causal reasoning), philosophy of language (expressivism, dynamic semantics, free choice effects, hyper-intensionality), formal semantics (compositional semantics of questions, modals, and conditionals), philosophy of mind (question-directed attitudes), metaphysics (supervenience), and epistemology (belief revision, contrastive knowledge). 
I have received in PhD from the University of Amsterdam in 2016. Before starting on the Emmy Noether project, I have been a postdoc at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation in Amsterdam, and an assistant professor at LMU, where I taught courses in logic and formal semantics in the MCMP Master in Logic and Philosophy of Science. I was grateful to receive a Prize for good teaching, awarded based on the votes of students of LMU’s entire philosophy department.
