(B.A. Tufts University, Philosophy and Biology, 2003) I am interested in the mind. As such, my philosophical interests span from Philosophy of Mind (consciousness, mental causation) to Philosophy of Science (explanation and reduction, physics, biology -especially evolutionary theory) to Philosophy of Psychology, and beyond. I am currently writing a dissertation on mental disorder and psychotherapeutic interventions. In my work, I attempt to pay heed to both neuroscientific explanations as well as autonomous mental routes of treatment. I have specific interests in mood disorders and addiction.
Outside of my academic interests, I love the natural world, both listening to and writing music, a good mystery, and living at the level of non-reflective phenomenal experience whenever I get the chance.
