Research

My primary research focuses on embodied, situated, and enactive approaches to the philosophy of mind and cognitive science.  I am particularly interested in how these approaches can help shed light on the metaphysics of consciousness and intentionality, and also in how embodiment might inform our overall metaphysics. I am also interested in the philosophy of science broadly, especially as it relates to questions concerning scientific naturalism and the place of the mind in the natural world—that is, whether we require revisions to scientific, metaphysical, or naturalistic commitments in accounting for mentality and its contributions.
