I work on radical embodied approaches in cognitive science. My work has three themes. The first one is to understand the nature of explanation in radical embodied cognitive science. The second one is to expand radical embodied theory to make it applicable to social and developmental phenomena. And the third one is to identify practical applications of the embodied approach, e.g. in informing the design of the built environment. I previously worked on these topics while working on a PhD at University of Edinburgh (completed 2015) and during a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellowship (in the psychology department at the University of Cincinnati and at the Bartlett School of Architecture at University College London, 2016-2019).
