Rachel’s dissertation is on the topic of singular, or "de re" thought, and her research addresses this and related issues in the philosophy of mind and language. A focus of her research is the relationship between singular content as it arises in language and thought. Her current projects include understanding how results in cognitive science bear on philosophical accounts of singular thought, and examining the relationship between metaphysical facts about object identity and facts about object-directed thought.
