Academic interests

My research centres around various forms and aspects of representation. 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 and representational aspects of music, as well as the perception of art generally. In 2018, I commence work on a four-year long 'Young Research Talents' project entitled 'Perceiving Representations: A Study of Structural Commonalities between Language, Pictures and Music', funded by the Norwegian Research Council.


I started in my current position as lecturer in summer 2017, after having been employed as fixed-term associate professor at IFIKK for two years. 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).
