I work on the intersection between philosophy of mind and computational cognitive neuroscience. I am interested in the architecture and organisation of the brain and cognition in theories under Dynamical Systems Theory and 4E Cognition.
My current research focuses on developing a theory of effects between experience and the brain, which, I submit, can be formulated as cultural permeation and its neural substrates under the paradigm of effective connectivity.
Another topic I am interested in is whether scientific realism about inference is justified on account of brain data analysis methods of Bayesian inference; and if so, how. This speaks to the question of whether inference exists in brain independently of our scientific practice or paradigms.
When I am not thinking about these things, I enjoy exploring and immersing in the natural world, learning about different cultures, and myself. Check out my pictures on Instagram.
