My work revolves around the general question, “what do we perceive?” I am particularly interested in philosophical and psychological theories that explain the connection between perception, inference, and judgment. While my focus is on how perception and company are related to conscious experience, I am also interested in the epistemology of perception, non-visual sense modalities, and early modern theories of perception.
