ALEX LASCARIDES

I hold the Chair of Semantics at the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, where I am a part of the Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation.
I am also affiliated with the Human Communication Research Centre.

My research is in semantics and pragmatics, focussing mainly on models of discourse coherence and conversation, including the meaning of hand gestures.
