I’m a philosopher and cognitive scientist specialising in mind, cognition and technology. My research departs from the assumption that the practise of philosophy and science is a situated affair, and that both come to their fullest potential in fruitful dialogue with one another. My current research interests are in embodied cognition, episodic remembering, and the ethics of artificial intelligence. If you’re a student looking to write a thesis on a topic I work on, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

Since December 2019, I have been a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Ruhr University Bochum, Germany. There I work in the research group “Constructing scenarios of the past: A new framework in episodic memory”, where I investigate how we may understand scenario construction in episodic memory.

Previously, I obtained my doctoral degree (PhD) from the University of Wollongong, Australia. As part of my doctoral studies, I was a visiting postgraduate researcher at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. Prior to my doctoral project, I studied Philosophy (MA, BA) and Artificial Intelligence (BSc) at Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands.
