Summary


I’m a philosopher of mind and cognitive science. I am fascinated by how we think, work, and play (basically live and love) together. For studying our rich social lives, I ongoingly develop the enactive theory of intersubjectivity called participatory sense-making. Its concepts and empirical methods are being applied in, e.g., autism research, therapeutic practices, education research, ethics, psychology, psychiatry, and neuroscience. With Ezequiel Di Paolo and Elena Cuffari, I recently wrote Linguistic Bodies: The Continuity Between Life and Language (MIT Press, October 2018). My doctorate is from the University of Sussex (2007), I’ve held various Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowships, and am currently Ramón y Cajal Research Fellow.
