I am a Ph.D. student in Philosophy at the University of Southern California, working primarily in the philosophy of cognitive science, mind, and language.
Some current projects in this vein: A naturalized account of perceptual contents based in a fine-grained functional analysis of the neural mechanisms involved in perception. A modeling of the perspective-dependent properties represented in perceptual experience. A theoretically fruitful approach to (something like) the individuation of the senses. Sorting out the contributions of the individual senses, crossmodal interactions, action, and amodal representations to spatial perception.
These projects fit into my broader research interests in mental content and its connection to issues in the philosophy of language (especially metasemantics) and linguistics.
I also work in the philosophy of art (the ontology of experimental musical and conceptual works, pre-institutional evaluative standards), the history of philosophy (early modern, especially the empiricists), the philosophy of psychiatry, and general philosophy of science.
