My research focuses on issues in the philosophy of perception. I am particularly interested in the metaphysics of perceptual experience, and in considering the implications of endorsing a genuinely physicalist account of the mind.

Before joining the department at Warwick I worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow on Tim Crane's 'New Directions in the Study of the Mind' project at the University of Cambridge. I also spent two years as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Bence Nanay’s research group at the University of Antwerp. I received my PhD in 2014 from the University of Reading, under the supervision of Galen Strawson and John Preston.
