Alexis Wellwood tenured at USC

Congratulations to Alexis Wellwood *14, now Associate Professor of Philosophy with tenure at USC. Alexis started with us as a Baggett Fellow in 2008, mentored by Valentine Hacquard, then continued with Valentine as her advisor, plus Paul Pietroski, Alexander Williams, Jeffrey Lidz, and Colin Phillips as "unofficial mentors," and a Language Science Fellowship that encouraged an independent study and coursework in the Philosophy Department. She got her PhD in 2014 with a dissertation on Measuring Predicates, then spent two years as Assistant Professor of Linguistics at Northwestern, before joining USC in 2017. With an office in University Park, Los Angeles, Alexis is one of now three LA Terrapins, along with Tim Hunter *10 and Laurel Perkins *19 over in Westwood at UCLA.
