Profile

I am a Teaching Fellow in Philosophy at the University of Warwick, and a member of the Warwick Mind and Action Research Centre (WMA). I also serve as a PhD Committee Member at the Research School of Psychology, Australian National University.

My research interests are in philosophy of psychiatry, philosophy of mind, cognitive science, and epistemology. I am the editor of the "Delusions", "Seemings", and "Location of Pain" categories on PhilPapers, and in the editorial board of Chinese Philosophical Review.

Previously, I held a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship at the Jagiellonian University in Poland, and a part-time Research Assistantship at the WMA.

Students who are taking, or interested in taking, these modules are very welcome to get in touch by email.
