I’m a writer and a scholar interested in altered states of consciousness. My current work centres on biological models of social cognition with a Jungian bent. I'm also interested in pharmacopeia and how it can inform our understanding of the structure of consciousness. My PhD research was based on Cartesian models of embodiment and I have had over 10 years of experience in the fields of developmental and cognitive psychology.
We are a team of early career researchers based around Australia – Canberra @ ANU / Melbourne @ Monash/MelbUni and Brisbane @ UQ
Co-director – More detail forthcoming
Member – Predominantly involved in the psychedelic phenomenology mapping project
My psychological training was at Monash University from 2011-2016 which included an honours dissertation and PhD thesis on Cartesian explanations for the embodied self. I conducted four different experiments that culminated in about four outputs at reputable publications. My postdoctoral work centred on VR-mediated perceptions at RMIT University's mental health and VR laboratory – which I co-founded in 2017. My broad interest is in the application of social neuroscience to strive towards a better understanding of the embodied mind in everyday life.
