About

I work in the philosophy of mind and cognitive science with special interests in perception, consciousness, and the nature of mental representation.  I maintain secondary interests in medical ethics and the philosophy of psychiatry as well as the intersection of these fields with philosophy of cognitive science, such as the metaphysics and ethics of sensory deficits and sensory substitution systems.  

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Arizona studying under Shaun Nichols and Terry Horgan.  I completed my B.Phil. in 2012 at the University of Oxford working under Martin Davies.  And I graduated as valedictorian with a B.A. in philosophy from Santa Clara University in 2009.
