About me

Introduction I am a post doc at the ARC centre of excellence in cognition and its disorders at Macquarie University where I am leading a project testing a hypothesis as to how the sense of embodiment is elicited in the rubber hand illusion (with Rachel Robbins, Regine Zopf, Alicia Wilcox and Xiaoqing Gao). More generally my current research is focused on consciousness, in particular self consciousness, including the sense of agency and associated pathologies. In addition I have projects underway investigating agency in the crime of filicide, sexism in stereotypes of parenting (with Neha Khetrapal) and theories of consciousness (with Elizabeth Schier).
