I am a doctoral student in philosophy of mind and neuroscience at the Graduate School of Systemic Neurosciences, Munich Center for Neurosciences – Brain & Mind, and the Faculty of Philosophy, Philosophy of Science and the Study of Religion, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.
I work in philosophy of mind and cognition with a strong empirical component. In particular, my research foci are on joint attention, shared perception, and social cognition. My broad interests are unabashedly varied, so in my spare time I pursue, and have pursued, various other hobbies: the origins of mental content and of communication, philosophy of logic, metaphysics (specially metaontology), history of philosophy, aesthetics, and artificial intelligence.
Before coming to Munich, I obtained a B.A. (first class honours) in Philosophy at the University of Dundee, an M.A. in Communication at the Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam, and a Research M.A. (cum laude) in Philosophy at Radboud University Nijmegen, with specialization in Philosophy of Mind and Language, where I also completed courses in Cognitive Neuroscience and AI. I have also been active as an independent artist and curator, having exhibited my artistic work internationally.
Besides philosophy and brain sciences, I’m passionate about hiking, mountaineering, climbing, running, cycling, programming, abstract art, and have a soft spot for all things avant-garde.
