Thomas de Haven Roberts

I am a second-year PhD student in Linguistics at UC Santa Cruz. Before that, I got my S.B. in Linguistics and Philosophy from MIT and was a Baggett fellow at the University of Maryland, where I was advised by Valentine Hacquard and Philip Resnik.

My research interests lie in semantics and pragmatics, especially of attitude verbs, questions, discourse particles, and Estonian. I also believe strongly in combining traditional linguistic research methods like fieldwork with experimentation, corpus work, and computational modeling. I'm an active member of the Language, Logic, and Cognition Lab and part of the program committee for the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad.

In Winter 2017 I'm a TA for Semantics 1 (LING 53) with Donka Farkas. My office hours are Thursdays 12-1pm in Stevenson 265.
