About me

I work in the philosophy of mind and the cognitive sciences from an embodied and situated perspective. My primary research interests are the complementarities and tensions between ecological psychology and enactivism, the philosophy of minimal cognition (with a particular emphasis on plants), and the relationship between socio-cultural norms, perception, and individual agency.

I hold a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Wollongong. My thesis, entitled “Towards a Radical Enactive Cognitive Science” (download here), focuses primarily on studying radical enactivism, a new theoretical proposal within the embodied cognitive sciences. The goal of this thesis is to advance some potential ways in which radical enactivism could be enriched, combining it with other, well-established research programs in cognitive science. The thesis was conducted under the supervision of Prof. Daniel D. Hutto, Dr. Michael Kirchhoff, and Dr. Glenda Satne (as an associate supervisor).
