I'm David Bain, Reader in the philosophy department at the University of Glasgow.  I taught previously at Oxford, Bristol, and Nottingham universities, after taking my BA and DPhil at Oxfordeither side of an MA at Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

I am Principal Investigator (jointly) of the Value of Suffering Project, and before that was joint PI of the Pain Project.  (See below.)

Interested in all aspects of philosophy, my research is mainly in philosophy of mind (especially pain, perception, and consciousness) in any of which areas I'm very happy to consider proposals from potential PhD students.
