I’m a Research Fellow in the Department of Philosophy and Centre for Vision Research at York University, Toronto, and as of October 2021 I’ll be a MindCORE Research Fellow in Philosophy, Psychology, and Linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania. Most of my work lies at the intersection between philosophy of mind and cognitive science.

Before arriving at York, I completed a DPhil in Philosophy at the University of Oxford (June 2019). During my final year I worked as a Researcher on The Sense of Commitment Project at the University of Warwick, and in 2017-18 I froze my studies in Oxford to take up a Procter Fellowship at Princeton (a position held by Alan Turing 80 years previously!). 

In recent work, I’ve argued that human perception comprises informationally encapsulated modules (suggesting that this is evinced, rather than refuted, by plausible forms of cognitive penetration)characterized the format of our perceptual representations (clarifying the structural and syntactic principles by which these analogue representations compose), and argued that humans and other animals possess a number sense which represents rational numbers.  Here’s my CV.
