My main areas of research are Philosophy of Mind and Cognitive Science, Philosophy of Computing, and Philosophy of Artificial Intelligence. I am also interested in Philosophy of Biology and General Philosophy of Science.

My main focus is on the notions of representation and computation in the cognitive sciences. Questions that I have been tackling include: what are the best candidate theories of representation and computation for the study of cognition? Can we provide a naturalistic account of representation and of computation? Do we actually need to? More recently, I got interested in debates on cognitive ontology, especially with an eye to the relevance of issues pertaining to cognitive representation and computation to those discussions.
