I'm interested in perception. More specifically, I'm interested in a family of issues regarding the nature of perceptual experiences and their putative capacity to justify beliefs about the external world. 

I also have interests in metaphysics and Kant (esp. the antinomies). 

Perception of an object costs
Precise the Object’s loss—
Perception in itself a Gain
Replying to its Price—

The Object Absolute—is nought—
Perception sets it fair
And then upbraids a Perfectness
That situates so far—

-Emily Dickinson
