Areas of interest: Formal semantics, pragmatics, syntax, and the interfaces of these fields, mathematical linguistics, philosophy of language (mainly
philosophical semantics), computational semantics.
Empirical domains of particular interest: conditionals (clausal adjuncts more generally), adverbs, interrogatives/questions (and other non-declaratives), question-answer discourse, regular polysemy, definiteness, anaphora (donkey anaphora in particular), Iroquoian phonology.
There is also a more detailed overview of my research interests, with downloadable papers. If you are wondering what linguistics/semantics/etc. is, this page (an informal overview to my research, for non-specialists) might be of interest to you.
