Personal profile

Research interests

Expertise in the field of philosophy of mind, in particular the mind-body relation, (self)consciousness, personal identity and perception. The notions of a first person perspective and of the body as an active, self-moving organism form important themes. I defend and develop a naturalistic and non-reductionist position and argue for a double aspect theory by combining empirical findings with philosophical analysis.
