I am interested in the intersection of philosophy of cognitive science, philosophy of mind and metaphysics. Currently, I work on colour, and in bringing insights from both the metaphysics of properties, and from empirical work on colour together to develop a robust view of the nature of colour.

Previously, I have worked on the metaphysics of properties, as well as the relevance of work on properties to questions concerning consciousness.

My PhD was on the nature of attention. I am particularly concerned with whether attention is one unified faculty of the mind, or in fact that ‘attention’ is just an umbrella term for a range of different psychological capacities.

I am also interested in pretty much any topic in philosophy of mind/psychology and metaphysics.
