Research interests

My research is on intentionality, consciousness, and the relationship between the two. Much of my work argues for a view on which all intentional states are phenomenal states. This is a version of the phenomenal intentionality theory, but my favored version of this view also qualifies as a version of intentionalism. According to this view, intentionality is more limited than we might have initially thought. While perceptual experience might represent fairly rich contents, thoughts represent fairly impoverished contents, and beliefs, desires, and nonconscious occurrent states don't have genuine intentional properties at all, though thoughts, beliefs, and desires have rich derived representational properties.
