My research interests center around the conceptual tools used in understanding the intentionality of language and thought (particularly the roles of truth and propositional content). Related interests include deflationary views of semantic notions and approaches to semantic paradox, especially non-classical logics. I also have strong historical interests, especially in Early Modern theories of intentionality.
Note of Nov. 29, 2017: I condemn and protest in the strongest terms today’s outrageous dissemination by the U.S. president of videos aiming to incite hatred against Muslims. Such hate speech is not just dangerous, as history abundantly shows; it is fundamentally unjust. It is also antithetical to everything the UConn academic community stands for — hence my protest on this page. I await a clear repudiation of today's action from the U.S. administration.
