My main philosophical interest is in the philosophy of mind, specifically the metaphysics of consciousness.

In my thesis, I argue that physicalism, which is the most popular position in philosophy of mind today - is false. Moreover, I argue that panpsychism, which is a rising alternative to physicalism - is also false. I do this by using the conceivability argument against both of these views. Since neither physicalism nor panpsychism can answer the problem of consciousness, I suggest that we should explore either idealist or neutral monist theses as better solutions.

Besides philosophy, I also do portrait photography.
