My main interests are in the metaphysics of mind. I studied at Tulane University, mostly in the philosophy department. I also spent a year in the departments of psychology and neuroscience, where I learned that I still had much to learn about the organ between our ears. My research examines prephilosophical, spatial foundations for linguistic and mental representations through the use of psychological work on statistical learning and perceptual development. I consider interdisciplinary approaches essential to good philosophical analysis, in particular for questions in cognitive science.
In fall 2013 term I will offer Introduction to Philosophy and Ethics with a decidedly mind/body theme, in addition to Metaphysics. I also regularly teach Philosophy of Science. In spring 2013 term I offered a cross-listed course with psychology in the philosophy of mind.
