I’m into perception, language, and social normativity. Embodied cognitive science, existential phenomenology, and transcendental idealism tend to inform how I think about things.

Currently, I’m looking into the phenomenology of language apprehension. How might we characterize the experiences afforded by language use? How do these experiences compare with those afforded by perceptual faculties?

Buddhist philosophy, the history of science (especially psychology, psychiatry, and medicine), and historical/archaeological methods are also important to me. I will happily draw your portrait if you ask, although there is no guarantee it will look like you!
