Research presentation:

Before my thesis at the IJN, I was a student in linguistics at the University of Nantes. My current research topics focus on semantics and philosophy of language.

I’m currently preparing a thesis under the codirection of Paul Egré, Orin Percus and Dominique Sportiche titled "The phenomena of vagueness: the contribution of the analysis of presuppositions and of the notion of scale".

It has two main axes:

 - the first one consists in exploring the possibilty of a unified conception of presuppositions and vagueness phenomena;

 - the second one consists in exploring to what extent the degree-based scales notion provides us with tools for and information on the different forms of vagueness in the lexicon.
