I am Csilla (she / her / hers), a second-year PhD student at the Department of Linguistics, University of Michigan – Ann Arbor.

My primary areas of interest are semantics, pragmatics, prosody, and neurolinguistics.

I completed my BA and MA studies in English Philology with a specialization in Theoretical Linguistics at Eötvös Loránd University (Hungary). My MA research centered around the semantics of pronouns and their treatment in formal semantics, pragmatics, and philosophy of language. In my thesis, I focused on the semantics of cataphoric structures in English, and touched upon the possibility of representing cataphoric reference in a dynamic semantic framework.
