I studied philosophy at the University of East Anglia and cognitive science at University College London before spending three years as a behavioural science consultant. My MSc thesis assessed integrated information theory as a philosophically and empirically viable theory of consciousness. I am interested in the metaphysics of consciousness; the nature of the self, embodied and extended cognition, and causal exclusion and emergence. More broadly I am interested in issues relating to cognitive enhancement and artificial intelligence. In particular, I am interested in using predictive processing theory as a framework to account for the contents of consciousness, and in disentangling consciousness from attention.
