About Me:

My research is focussed on perception, pain, the self, emotions, motivation, and bodily awareness. My work is thoroughly interdisciplinary, starting from humanistic concerns about the nature of lived human experience, and constrained and informed by work in a range of scientific disciplines. A primary focus has been on the sense of touch and haptic exploration. At the moment, I'm especially interested in the relationship between perception and emotion.
