Lecturer (Philosophy)

My interests lie at the intersection of Philosophy of Mind and Cognitive Science, with particular reference to embodied, embedded, and extended cognition and perception. This paradigm treats an organism's thoughts and experiences as being essentially informed and determined by her location in, and interaction with, a physical and cultural environment. More radically, the approach motivates the view that the mind is not simply housed within the head, but may spread across brain, body, and world.
