About me

I am a philosopher. My research focuses on philosophy of mind, philosophy of cognitive science, emotion theory, and aesthetics.​ I mainly work on emotions, art and implicit attitudes, such as implicit racist and sexist prejudices.


I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at Birkbeck, University of London. I received the British Society of Aesthetics Postdoctoral Award, to do research on fiction, emotion and implicit attitudes

In October 2019, I started doing interdisciplinary research with a team of social psychologists from Agnes Moors’ Lab at KULeuven on implicit bias and implicit racism. I received a Postdoctoral Fellowship from the FWO (Flemish Research Foundation). This project is currently “on hold” because I started the aforementioned BSA postdoc. 

 

I was a postdoctoral researcher at Thumos, which is part of the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences, at the University of Geneva (2018-2019). I received a Postdoctoral Swiss Government Excellence Scholarship to do research on emotion and implicit bias. 

 

In 2018, I completed my doctoral studies in philosophy at UGent and UAntwerp, at Bence Nanay's Research Group  (Centre for Philosophical Psychology). My doctoral work is on emotion and mental content.
