My doctoral project focuses on perceptual experience and how it relates to other forms of conscious awareness. How best can we describe and explain experience, and how can we make use of those descriptions and explanations in developing philosophical arguments?

My starting point has been considering what is called perceptual presence. This is the sense a perceiver has that what they are looking at is actually there, located in their environment, in a way that imagined or remembered objects could never be. I am interested in how thoughts in this vein were developed across the 20th century, both in the analytic and phenomenological traditions, and how they might be put to use in contemporary philosophy of perception and mind.

Aside from this, I’m also interested in memory, affectivity, language.
