Projects and collaborations
Postdoctoral Research Fellow on the Perceiving Representations: A Study of Structural Commonalities Between Language, Pictures and Music project at the University of Oslo, where I conducted empirically-informed research in the metaphysics and temporal structure of perceptual experience.
Collaborator on the Perceiving Properties in a World of Objects project, University of Oxford.
Co-author of the Oxford Bibliographies entry on the senses with Fiona Macpherson, University of Glasgow.
Awarded John Templeton Foundation research funding via the University of Cambridge’s New Directions in the Study of the Mind initiative for a project on the temporal structure of experience, which continues to form a central focus of my research.
Co-edited a special issue of the journal Topoi on Perception Without Representation with Roberta Locatelli of the University of Tübingen.
Postdoctoral Researcher on the Rethinking the Senses project, University of Glasgow
In my Ph.D. thesis I argued that constraints upon our ability to recognise the contents of our experience rule out many apparently plausible accounts of experiential content and phenomenal character, i.e. what perceptual experience is subjectively like, the central argument from which is summarised in my paper on ‘Are the Senses Silent? Travis’s Argument from Looks’.
I argue in a follow-up paper that representational content is recognisable to the subject, with important implications for the metaphysics and epistemology of perception.
