Reader in Philosophy at the University of Glasgow, I am interested in all areas of philosophy but tend to focus on philosophy of mind, especially phenomenal consciousness, perception, and in particular the affective dimensions of our mental lives.  I'm always delighted to receive inquiries from prospective PhD students.  (More on this here and more on my researchere.)  I was Principal Investigator of the  Pain Project (2012-13) and the Value of Suffering Project (2013-16) and previously taught at Oxford, Bristol, and Nottingham universities after taking my BA and DPhil at Oxford either side of an MA at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill.
