I’m a senior lecturer in Philosophy at Cardiff University. My main interests are in philosophy of cognitive science and psychology (inc. linguistics). At the moment, I’m interested in methodological questions in consciousness science, including research on animal sentience research. I’m also doing some work roughly in the area of philosophy of language/linguistics, exploring some of the implications of taking new research on the properties of dynamic linguistic interaction seriously.
Bio: I studied for my masters in History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh, and got my PhD from the University of Edinburgh in 2011. From 2011-2013 I was a post-doc in Philosophy of Neuroscience at the University of Tuebingen, at the Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN). From 2013-2014 I was a post-doc at ANU working on the evolution of language on Kim Sterelny’s ‘Signs to Symbols’ project. I joined the Philosophy Department at the University of Cardiff as a lecturer in September 2014.
