    Research keywords
    • Semantic relationism, de jure coreference, mental files, the semantics and pragmatics of referential terms, and the answering machine paradox

    Research highlights
    • I work primarily on issues in the philosophy of language and metaphysics. My current work focuses on issues surrounding the linguistic phenomena termed de jure coreference -- In particular, I explore such issues from the perspective of semantic relationism. Also, I have research interests in the semantics and pragmatics of referential terms (e.g. names, definite descriptions, pronouns, indexicals, and demonstratives). Here are some of the issues that I am currently working on.

    • Coordination in confused cases: I outline and defend an account of how coordination works in cases of referential confusion.
    • Type-polysemous account of names: I offer a new semantic account of names. The key idea is that an account employing type shifting principles best explains the linguistic data regarding a variety of uses of names.

    Research highlights
    • Ordered mesoporous carbon materials, called CMK-n, have been created in this laboratory. Another notable work is the synthesis of mesoporous materials built with crystalline microporous zeolite frameworks, which opened up new possibilities in advanced zeolite catalysis. Current research interest is in heterogeneous catalysis based on nanoporous catalytic materials, particularly, for hydrogen production, future energy sources, and clean environments.
