I'm an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Illinois State University (2014-present). I'm also the Director of the Cognitive Science minor (2017-present). Prior to coming to Illinois State, I completed my PhD in philosophy at the University of Toronto (2014), and my BA (2002) and MA (2004) at York University, Toronto.

My research lies at the intersection of philosophy, neuroscience, & psychology. In particular, I look at interoception and how it relates to our consciousness in view to defend an embodied mind approach.
