Hi, I'm Ai. I'm a linguist specializing in formal semantics and formal pragmatics. My research interests include dynamic semantics, non-at-issue meaning, and social meaning.
I did my PhD in Linguistics at Michigan State University, under the supervision of Marcin Morzycki. I am an Assistant Professor of English Language Linguistics and Online Teaching in the Department of Language Studies at the University of Toronto Mississauga.
I was previously at Carleton University.

As teaching stream faculty, I have a lot of passion for pedagogy in linguistics. My teaching interests include the use of comics for education, hybrid/online teaching, public outreach in linguistics, and EDID in linguistics. You can find out more about my pedagogy and outreach work under the Teaching tab.


Semantics/pragmatics papers, talk slides, and handouts can be found under the
Research tab.

Here's my CV.

Please see the Contact tab for my email, office phone number, office address, and office hour schedule.


Essentials of Linguistics (2nd edition), which I am a co-author of, is now available! It's free!
