Michela Ippolito

Associate Professor of Linguistics

M.Phil., University of Oxford; Ph.D., MIT

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Toronto. I received a Ph.D. in Linguistics from the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2002.

My research and teaching interests are in formal semantics and pragmatics. In particular, I have worked on topics such as modality, counterfactuals, focus, presuppositions and implicatures, tense and aspect, and more recently the semantics of clitic pronouns in intensional and non-intensional contexts. I am also interested in crosslinguistic semantics and Romance linguistics.
