About Me

I'm lecturer in the Department of Philosophy at University College Cork, where I have been since 2006. Previously, I was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Toronto, where I also completed my MA and PhD in the Department of Philosophy and was a junior fellow of Massey College. Prior to that, I read for a BA in Psychology, Philosophy and Physiology at St. Anne's College in Oxford.


My research is at the intersection of Philosophy of Mind and Cognition and Philosophy of Science; I'm especially interested in the concepts of emergence and explanation, the use of dynamical systems theory in cognitive science, and the "extended mind" hypothesis. You can read more about all that on my research page.
