Alexandre Cremers


I recently completed my PhD at LSCP (ENS), under the supervision of Emmanuel Chemla. My work combines theoretical and experimental approaches to semantics and pragmatics. In my dissertation, I studied some aspects of the semantics of questions (exhaustivity and plurality effects).

Conducting experiments made me interested in the statistics used for psycholinguistics (mixed models, bayesian statistics with STAN), and in general questions about Amazon's Mechanical Turk (e.g. which factors affect the population sample in your experiments). I have been using Alex Drummond's Ibex interface for the last few years. I also make music sometimes, although not on a regular basis.
