I’m a philosopher and cognitive scientist specialising in philosophy of mind and philosophy of technology. I focus on embodied & enactive cognition, memory, and artificial intelligence. In my recent research, I've looked at the study of memory through the use of virtual reality, and at the ethics of sex robots. 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.

I’m an avid Linux / retro / boardgame gamer.
