Research

Philosophy of cognitive science and philosophy of mind. My research focuses on questions that arise at the intersection of the philosophy of mind and the cognitive sciences. I am especially interested in the developmental origins of the human conceptual system, the relationship between language and thought, and the explanation of distinctively human cognition. I am also interested in the implications of this work for questions about general philosophical methodology.
