I’m a philosopher interested in the theory of psychology, particularly ecological psychology, in pragmatism and the philosophy of cognitive science. I hold PhD degrees in both Philosophy and in Human Movement Sciences. In 2017 the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) awarded my work with a postdoctoral fellowship.
Combining ethnography with philosophical analysis, my research focuses on the sociomaterial context of perception and action, as well as on the ecology of reflective experience, such as remembering the past or imagining the future. I’m also keenly interested in the role of psychological science, its methods and practices, in shaping these open-ended processes. You can find links to all my publications and a selection of talks here.
I’ve taught several courses on philosophy and psychology to students from various academic disciplines and have been involved in supervising students at graduate and undergraduate levels.
I’m currently based at the Transformative Practices group at the Eindhoven University of Technology and at the Centre for Philosophical Psychology at the University of Antwerp.
I’m happy to announce that a paper detailing my take on an ecological approach to psychology was recently published in Perspectives on Psychological Science (freely available here).
