I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Fribourg and a member of the Thumos research group in the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences, University of Geneva, working on the SNF-funded project Modes and Contents (PI: Fabrice Teroni). I completed my PhD in philosophy at University College London in December 2018. Before that I completed an MPhil Stud and an MA, both also in philosophy, at UCL and King’s College London respectively, and a BA in fine arts at the University of the West of England.
My main research interests are in the philosophy of mind and action, moral psychology, and the philosophy of psychology. Most broadly, I am interested in how we understand ourselves and other people. More specifically, my research engages with such issues as the role of reasons in the explanation of action, emotion and belief; the nature of motivating mental states such as love and desire; and the character and development of ordinary psychological understanding (‘theory of mind’, ‘mindreading’, or ‘folk’ or ‘commonsense’ psychology).
