About me
I'm a post-doctoral researcher at Institut Jean Nicod in Paris, France. Next year I'll be Assistant Professor of Philosophy/Cognitive Science at Carleton University in Ottawa. Last year, I received my Ph.D. from The Graduate Center, City University of New York. I wrote my dissertation, "The Nature of Agentive Awareness", under the supervision of David Rosenthal.

    A full account of purposive action must appeal not only to propositional attitude states like beliefs, desires, and intentions, but also to motor representations, i.e., non-propositional states that are thought to represent, among other things, action outcomes as well as detailed kinematic features of bodily movements. This raises the puzzle of how it is that these two distinct types of state successfully coordinate. We examine this so-called “Interface Problem”. First, we clarify and expand on the nature and role of motor (...)

    Agentive awareness is the awareness one has of oneself as acting, or as performing a particular action. Theorists distinguish between high-level , low-level , and integrative approaches to explaining this brand of subjective awareness. In this paper, I evaluate the commitment of both low-level and integrative approaches to the claim that the representations involved in sensorimotor control, specifically as described by the comparator model , contribute in some significant way to agentive awareness. I examine the main empirical data offered in (...)
