I am interested in the logic of ordinary language. We logicians study concepts such as truth, consequence, proof, computation and information with the help of formal languages, but it has increasingly become clear that many insights thus obtained also apply to the vernacular. My particular interest is in the question how linguistic expressions manage to carry meaning. A closely related interest is in the use of logic to model aspects of context and social interaction.

I am in the Tilburg Center for Logic and Philosophy of Science, (or TiLPS) at Tilburg University.
