I am an associate professor in philosophy at Umeå University.  Before that, I was a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at KCL, and a teaching fellow at UCL. I finished my PhD in 2016 at UC Berkeley.

Some of my work involves detailed questions about how language works at the level of the compositional semantics.

Some of it involves ethics, social philosophy, and politics, with a particular focus on questions about how we use language in constructing our identities and shaping our communities. 

​I co-organize the Linguistic Justice Society seminar series. 

In 2000, I co-founded a non-profit organization that I ran until 2010. In 2005, the organization became the US counterpart to Ayuda Directa, an NGO that is currently active in Ecuador.
