History

As of September 2012, I’m a Lecturer in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Reading.

In August 2013 I became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

In 2011-2012, I was a Bersoff Fellow in the Philosophy Department at New York University.

I did a BA in classics at New College, Oxford, and an MPhil in philosophy at University College London, before moving to UC Berkeley for my PhD, which was supervised by John Campbell and Alva Noë.

My PhD dissertation was about the effects of attention on visual experience and their implications for epistemology. I argued that, to understand the nature and epistemic role of attention consistently with these effects, we need to recognize a certain indeterminacy in conscious vision: visual experience is experience of determinable properties, and visual attention affects which of these properties we see.

At Berkeley, Ariel Rokem and I ran the Townsend Center Working Group in Philosophy of Mind, an interdisciplinary group in philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience.
