From 2012 I have been based in London. My primary intellectual home these days is Department of Philosophy, University College London. I also spend much time at the Action and Body Lab, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, at the same school. From 2013 to 2016 I was a research assistant of Rethinking the Senses project, hosted by CenSes, Institute of Philosophy. During the same period I was also part-time at Department of Psychology, Birkbeck, University of London. Before arriving London, I spent two years at Department of Philosophy, City University of New York, Graduate Center. Over the years I have also visited University of California, Berkeley, and Duke University.
I am a SSNaP fellow at Duke Institute for Brain Sciences (2017-8), a steering committee member of iCog (2016-), a philosopher-in-residence of UCL Action and Body Lab at Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience (2015-), and a PhD candidate at UCL Department of Philosophy (2015-).
I will be a visiting fellow at Centre for the Future of Intelligence, University of Cambridge (2019), an associate student fellow at Institute of Philosophy (2018-9), and a recognised student at Department of Philosophy, University of Oxford (2018). These visitings are partially funded by Royal Institute of Philosophy.
I primarily work on the nature and epistemology of content and consciousness. More specifically, I investigate perception, the senses, attention, self-awareness, spatio-temporal representations, metacognition, cognitive development, and animal minds.
