Professional Summary

I do research in the philosophy of mind, psychology, and cognitive science, particularly where these inform theoretical models of mental disorder. My current research focuses on the analogies and disanalogies between mental disorder and bodily illness, and what these can tell about the status of psychiatry as a branch of medical science and the proper boundaries of psychiatric practice.
