Hello! I'm Jess Law, an Assistant Professor in Department of Linguistics at University of California, Santa Cruz. My research interests lie in semantics (pragmatics included) and the experimental approach to studying meaning. I'm actively working on answering the following questions.

Before coming to UC Santa Cruz, I studied at Rutgers University for my PhD and Chinese University of Hong Kong for my MPhil and BA. I go by both Jess and 海琪 (pronounced as hɔɪ keɪ in Cantonese). It's hard to resist thinking about language, but when I managed not to, I enjoy reading about philosophy, science, and history. You can reach me at jesslaw@ucsc.edu. me
