Dr. Naomi Francis is a postdoctoral researcher in the ERC project Speech Acts in Grammar and Discourse (SPAGAD) / Research Area 4 'Semantics & Pragmatics'.

Francis studies semantics and its interfaces with syntax and pragmatics. Her research focuses on how information is packaged in discourse and how at-issue and not-at-issue content interact; it tackles puzzles related to alternatives, presupposition, and polarity phenomena. She is also interested in the role of audiovisual prosody (i.e., gesture and intonation) in discourse management and in children's acquisition of semantics.
