I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Centre for Philosophical Psychology, at the University of Antwerp. Starting July 2019, I will be an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at York University, where I will also be a Core Member of the Vision: Science to Applications (VISTA) program. I received my PhD in Philosophy from UCLA.
I work mainly in philosophy of mind and philosophy of psychology. My interests extend into philosophy of language, philosophy of science, metaphysics, epistemology, formal semantics, and 20th century phenomenology. My research focuses on how we perceive the world to be organized, how our perception of the world is itself organized, and how the structure of perception relates to the perception of structure. I look at the findings and underlying commitments of research in perceptual psychology and I draw on conceptual tools developed in philosophy of language in order to better understand the nature of our capacities to grasp the world perceptually.
I grew up in Bozeman, MT and went to college at Montana State University. Before going to UCLA, I got an MA in Philosophy at Brandeis University.
