Jacopo   Romoli

Jacopo Romoli was born in Rome, Italy and studied Psychology and Linguistics as an undergraduate at the University of Milan-Bicocca. In 2007, he moved to Cambridge, USA, to continue his studies at Harvard University, where he obtained his PhD in Linguistics in 2012. His dissertation investigates a variety of phenomena at the intersection of Scalar Implicatures and Presuppositions, with particular focus on their interaction.  

In August 2012, Jacopo moved to Sydney, Australia, to become postdoctoral fellow at the ARC Centre of excellence for the study of Cognition and its Disorders (CCD) at Macquarie University. In November 2012, he became Associate Investigator of the CCD.  

Since September 2013, he has also been a Lecturer in Linguistics at Ulster University. He is also a fellow of the Higher Education Academy and member of the editorial board of Semantics and Pragmatics.  

Jacopo’s research interests are on formal semantics and pragmatics for natural languages, language processing and language acquisition. More specifically, his current research focuses on Presuppositions, Plurality, Countability, Scalar Implicatures, Free choice inferences, Neg-raising phenomena, Assertability constraints, and the scope interactions of nominal quantifiers and modals.
