Research Program:

My research investigates the consequences of taking the position that the description of a term should be true of the term in all contexts where it appears.  The following document outlines the motivations for this position along with recent results of my research.  Also discussed is an overview of the computer model that I am currently developing with professor Robert Mercer of the Department of Computer Science at UWO.
