Omar Agha

I am a linguist, and I work on the semantics and pragmatics of natural languages. Right now, I’m a Visiting Instructor at the University of Connecticut, and a Ph.D. candidate in linguistics at New York University.

My dissertation work is on homogeneity effects, and sentences and inferences that are known to tolerate exceptions. The expressions I study include conditionals, temporal adverbs, and generics. I also have work in progress on discourse structure, polar questions, and the pragmatics of plurals.

My advisor is Lucas Champollion.
