My research focuses on issues in the philosophy of mind and philosophy of psychology and neuroscience. Topics on which I am currently working include: the notion of a level of consciousness; philosophical implications of multisensory integration; the nature of delusions and the relationship between delusional and non-pathological belief-formation; the phenomenal character of conscious thought; and the challenges posed by measuring consciousness.

I would be happy to supervise work on any topic in the philosophy of mind, philosophy of psychology and neuroscience, and philosophy of psychiatry. I would also be happy to play an advising role for graduate work conducted on certain topics in the philosophy of religion.
