I am a philosopher at the City University of New York. In particular I am an Associate Professor in the Philosophy Program at LaGuardia Community College (for more on that see the NPR story on our program). I am also a member of the NYU Project on Space, Time, and Consciousness. This is a five-year project sponsored by the NYU Global Institute for Advanced Studies and directed by David Chalmers
I earned my PhD in Philosophy with a concentration in Cognitive Science from the CUNY Graduate Center in 2008. My work is focused on the philosophy of mind, consciousness studies, and the foundations of cognitive science but I also have interests and projects in the philosophy of language, metaethics, philosophy of physics, logic and the philosophy of logic, as well as the history of philosophy.
From 2002-2003 I was at the University of Connecticut, where I earned my M. A. in Philosophy (and did some work in the Behavioral Neuroscience Laboratory led by James Chrobak), and from 2000-2002 I was at San Francisco State University where I completed all requirements for an M. A. in Psychology with a concentration in Physiological Psychology (while officially enrolled in the philosophy program). You can find my CV here.
In addition there is a full list of my work at my PhilPapers profile (or my Google Scholar page), and I have a lot of videos at my Youtube channel (including some videos of my talks, as well as from the Online Consciousness Conference, my online course lectures, and my attempts at playing ‘music’ with my fellow philosophers and cognitive scientists…for those who are gluttons for punishment see the story on the Qualia Fest in the New York Times or My Musical Autobiography).
I was also interviewed by Richard Marshall in 3:AM Magazine and appeared on Philosophy TV having a discussion with Pete Mandik, and a second time with Keith Frankish. As if that isn’t enough, I occasionally blog at Philosophy Sucks!, am a contributor to Brains (a group blog on topics in the philosophy and science of mind), and am the co-host of the SpaceTimeMind podcast!
