My research is in the philosophy of mind and psychology, focusing primarily on the nature of perceptual experience and the senses. I'm currently working on multisensory perception and the perception of events. I'm also interested in self-consciousness, first-person thought and the philosophy of action.

Prior to coming to Stirling, I held postdoctoral research positions at the Universities of Barcelona and Warwick. Whilst at Warwick I was a postdoctoral researcher on the Rethinking the Senses project. I completed my PhD in philosophy at the University of Edinburgh with a thesis titled 'The concept of self: thinking of oneself as a subject of thought'.

In 2016/2017 I ran the Early Career Mind Network project, which was funded by a British Academy Rising Star Engagement Award 2016/17. Patrick Butlin (King's College London) and I are continuing the project by organising the ECMN Seminars.

Between 2011 and 2013 I was a member of The (Un)Bound Body Project: Exploring the constraints of embodiment and the limits of body representation, funded by VolkswagenStiftung European Platform for the Life Sciences, Mind Sciences and the Humanities.
