Professional Summary

As a philosopher of mind, biology, and cognitive science, my research focuses on the phenomena of cognition (anticipatory dynamics) and life (far from thermodynamic equilibrium steady-state maintaining dynamics). The central thesis of my work is that these two dynamics necessitate one another. I compare and contrast the merits and explanatory scope of conceptual and formal models of life and mind, and explore the implications of these considerations for some of the major outstanding questions in the cognitive and biological sciences and in the philosophy of mind.
