About Me

Welcome! I am currently a PhD candidate in the Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method at the London School of Economics. ​My work falls mostly at the intersection of philosophy of mind, the philosophy of  science and meta-philosophy but I also have broader research interests within epistemology and ethics. I am currently working on a number of foundational issues which arise within consciousness science when one attempts to study consciousness (both in the phenomenal sense and global states of consciousness) as a natural kind.​​ More details on this research and recent publications can be found on my research page.

When I'm not doing philosophy, I love to travel, cook and eat (mostly many different kinds of pasta), take photographs (like those on this site), read bad science fiction and hike in the Yorkshire Dales (where I grew up).
