General Information

I am a philosopher of mind and cognitive science (or rather affective science). I am particularly interested in the embodied-enactive approach to the mind (see the book by Evan Thompson, "Mind in Life: Biology, Phenomenology and the Sciences of the Mind", Harvard University Press, 2007), and how it can be applied to our conceptualization of emotion, as well as vice-versa. I am currently working on a book provisionally titled "The Feeling Body: Emoting the Embodied Mind" (MIT Press).
