I am a postdoc at ILLC, which is part of the University of Amsterdam. I'm working in the area of natural language semantics under the supervision of Reinhard Muskens. The focus of our project is the application of abductive reasoning to modelling the semantics/pragmatics interface. I am also interested in the semantics/pragmatics interface in a more general way, and in particular the mechanisms of exhaustification, the semantics of questions, and the role of alternatives in meaning.

I completed my Ph.D. at Institut Jean Nicod in Paris, under the supervision of Benjamin Spector. Before getting into linguistics, I studied theoretical computer science and machine learning.

My name is pronounced /emil ɑ̃gø.aʁ/.
