curriculum vitae


My work concerns topics in the philosophy of mind and the philosophical foundations of Psychology and the Cognitive Sciences, often intersecting with moral psychology, aesthetics, ethics and epistemology. My published research has focused on: the nature of consciousness, perceptual, and emotional experience, related issues in epistemology and metaphysics, and relevant research in the cognitive and biological sciences.
