research overview

  • I am interested in the empirical study of the mind and the metaphysical nature of our world that allows for the fruitful empirical study of the mind. As a result, my research focuses both on theoretical ideas in cognitive science (concept acquisition, mental content, mental representation, models of human cognitive processing) and in the metaphysics of science (laws of nature, properties, relations of fundamental physics to other sciences). I'm also deeply interested in philosophical method itself, in particular, to what extent and in what way philosophers can generate knowledge independent of the scientific enterprise.
