Academic interests

My research centres around various forms and aspects of representational content. Among other things, I am interested in the nature of thought, its intentionality, and its relation to perception and linguistic representation. I am also interested in artistic representation, especially pictorial representation, as well as the perception of art generally.


Since 2013, I have been affiliated with CSMN. I studied at University College London (PhD, 2014; MPhil, 2010) and the University of Oslo (Bachelor, 2008). In 2012-2013, I was awarded a Jacobsen Studentship from the Royal Institute of Philosophy in London.
