I am a philosopher. My research focuses on the role of iconic and diagrammatic signs in conscious experience and logical reasoning. My work thus intersects epistemology and philosophy of mind. My methods are mainly those of the analytic tradition, but I occasionally venture into other traditions, notably pragmatism and phenomenology.
I have two PhDs — one in Philosophy of Mind from York University in Toronto, and another in Philosophy of Signs from the University of Quebec in Montreal (I wrote the Oxford University Press annotated bibliography on semiotics, arguably the least-known branch of philosophy ending in “-ics”). I did my post-doctoral work at the University of Helsinki, where I worked on a project called Diagrammatic Mind. I have taught philosophy at York University and Trent University.
