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 is connected with broader themes from ethics, social philosophy, and politics, involving questions about how we use language in constructing our identities and shaping our communities. 

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.
