PhD Student and Rotman Institute Member
I was initially drawn to philosophy by the desire to learn how, if ever, we are able to really know anything at all. More specifically, I spent my undergraduate years at McMaster University focusing on questions concerning theories and meta-theories of epistemic justification. This all changed when I took Dr. Anderson's seminar on the Philosophy of Neuroscience during my MA at Western. For it was there that I was first confronted with radical embodied cognitive science and its profound implications for how we should study cognition. I am back at Western, pursuing my PhD in philosophy, and am especially interested in learning more about what it really means to perturb a smoothly coping organism.
