I am a PhD student in the Philosophy department at The University of Nottingham, currently working on a thesis about evolutionary psychology and art, broadly construed. I moved to Nottingham after completing my BA in Philosophy and MA in Cognitive Studies at The University of Sheffield. I am one of two PhD students working on the AHRC project “Method in Philosophical Aesthetics: The challenge from the sciences” (website). I’m primarily interested in the intersections between cognitive science, evolutionary theory, philosophy and anthropology, and how combining insights from across these disciplines can help us better understand the human mind. When not doing academic things I can mostly be found playing, writing and recording music or at gigs and club nights, dancing and DJing and generally making a fool out of myself.
