My research is in philosophy of mind, philosophy of psychology, and epistemology. I aim to understand sensory perception in a way that’s sensitive both to philosophical problems and to the latest scientific evidence. I’m especially interested in the commonplace idea that sensory experience is a source of knowledge about the world around us. I argue that, to do justice to this idea, we need to appreciate various respects in which the senses give us an indeterminate view both of the world around us and of ourselves.
I recently collaborated with Andrew Glennerster on a multidisciplinary AHRC Research Network project about the action-based brain, which included philosophers, neuroscientists, and computer vision experts. A draft of our co-authored paper is available here. Comments very welcome. There’s also a post about the project and the paper at the Brains blog.
