Research Interests

I am currently pursuing two related research themes. The first is an examination of ecological theories of perception - an approach that emphasises perceivers' embodied skills and sensorimotor knowledge - with special reference to non-visual sensory modalities. The second concerns the implications of the Extended Mind Hypothesis for epistemology, and for our mental-state concepts. Both projects continue my research interests in traditional questions in analytic philosophy of mind, considered from a naturalistic and empirically-informed perspective.
