I mostly write on topics in the philosophy of cognitive science. My doctoral work focused on the subjective experience of embodiment, and I have since then investigated high-order processes in perceptual integration and holistic states of consciousness. I also work actively with emerging technologies that shed light on the nature of human perception and consciousness, including the use of virtual reality (VR), augmented reality, Petkova and Ehrsson's body swapping protocol, and others.

From time to time I maintain a personal blog on this website. I also write for popular blogs internationally and within Australia, including The Conversation. While I mostly write about altered states of consciousness, perceptual integration, and the phenomenal nature of self, I also delve into a range of other applied psychology and philosophy topics.
