I’m a philosopher interested in the theory of psychology, particularly of ecological psychology, in pragmatism, STS 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.
My research focuses on developing a philosophical psychology that acknowledges and explores the indeterminacies of the world that we share across generations and with multiple species. This takes me to such topics as the temporality of the living world, perception, action and the notion of information, sociomaterial practices, language and reflective thought, and their various interconnections. It also leads me to questions about the nature of inquiry in psychological science, its methods and responsibilities. You can find links to all my publications and a selection of talks here.
I’ve taught several courses in philosophy of mind and action to students of philosophy and of science and have been involved in supervising students at graduate and undergraduate levels.
I’m currently based at the group for Systemic Change 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).
