Much of my research concerns the relationship between our capacities to perceive the world and to think about what we perceive. My dissertation was on perception-based thought about observable properties (e.g. shapes, sizes, colours). A new project explores just how much of our thought about the world depends upon our capacity for perception-based thought about properties.
I also write about the epistemology of perception, the nature of reference, the metaphysics of perceptual experience, and issues in general jurisprudence.
