I teach philosophy at the University of Glasgow.


My main research interests are in the philosophy of mind and cognitive science, particularly the metaphysics of mind: the problem of mental causation, the mind-body problem, and the prospects for materialist accounts of mental phenomena.


I also take an interest in reductive versus non-reductive projects in science more generally, the development of the philosophy of mind in the twentieth century, the philosophy of art, and David Hume.


For more information, see my Research, School of Humanities, Short Courses, In the media, and Et cetera pages, as well as my CV.
