Hi! I'm Shane, a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation at Universiteit van Amsterdam, on the project Cognitive Semantics and Quantities. During March and April 2017, I am a visiting researcher at Institut Jean Nicod at École Normale Supérieure.
Before that, I did my PhD in Philosophy and Symbolic Systems from Stanford University. My dissertation was titled "Communication and Computation: New Questions About Compositionality" and was supervised by Johan van Benthem. During Summer 2016, I was a research software engineering intern in the Research and Machine Intelligence division of Google. Before that, I studied Philosophy, Mathematics, and Computer Science at The Johns Hopkins University.
