Omar Agha

I’m a Ph.D. student in linguistics at New York University. I work on the semantics and pragmatics of natural languages.

My current project relates to 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.
