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 cornering theories and meta-theories of justification. This all changed when i took Dr. Anderson's seminar on the Philosophy of Neuroscience during my MA at Western University. For it was there that I was first confronted with the possibility that the nature of beliefs, and indeed, of cognition more generally, might be radically different than seems to have been assumed in traditional epistemology. Now I am back at Western in the first year of my PhD in philosophy, eager to learn more about all things 4E cognition as well as the implications that such theories have for how we think about epistemology. To this end, I am especially interested in enabling constraints and ecological information.
