Professional Summary

I work on the Philosophy of Cognitive Science and Philosophy of Mind, as well as their links to the History and Philosophy of Biology and Continental perspectives on life and mind. This includes the work of Jakob von Uexküll and his reception within French and German Philosophy, as well as Phenomenology, particularly where it intersects with Psychology. I am interested in how humans conceive of themselves and their ability to shape their own lives in light of the life sciences. I am centrally concerned with the interactions across timescales between the different forms of plasticity present in genes, brains, and environments.
