I am graduated in Philosophy (BA, 2010; MA., 2012 summa cum laude), and Cognitive. Science (PG, 2015). Currently, I am a postgraduate award PhD candidate on Philosophy of Mind and Cognition, at the University of Wollongong (Australia).
My research focuses on the relation between perception and cognition. While perceive and cognising sometimes inter-relate, perceiving has special properties that motivate thinking of it in terms of a perception-cognition boundary. My research questions whether and, if so, how to draw boundaries between perception and cognition in optimisation schemes of predictive processing and active inference. There are philosophical and empirical reasons in favour of a relation between cognition and perception. However, in the light of visual ‘illusions’, predictive processing is left with one puzzle, how to draw new boundaries that specify conditions for contingent segregation within the perception-cognition continuum - one that is not vulnerable to epistemological problems of content?
When I am not thinking about these things, I enjoy travelling to discover cultures and myself and exploring the natural world. Check out my pictures on Instagram.
