Josh Martin defended his dissertation on Compositional routes to (non)intersectivity, which investigates how adjectival/nominal modification works on the morphosyntactic, syntactic, syntactic/semantic, and semantic/conceptual levels, by paying special attention to edge cases such as privative adjectives (his committee was Kate Davidson, Jonathan Bobalijk, and Gennaro Chierchia). We're very lucky that Josh will still be near Cambridge next year, in his new position working at Spotify's Boston offices. Huge congratulations, Josh!!
