I am an associate professor of philosophy at Yale-NUS College. My research projects are in philosophy of mind and epistemology.
My main project is to defend the dual awareness theory of perception. On this theory, any genuine perception comprises two importantly different relations:
My side project is to offer a reductive theory of normativity, with emphasis on epistemic normativity. On my telic internalist view, any subject's having a foundational reason to φ is grounded primarily in her having a final personal aim of φ-ing. Roughly, whether this aim is conative or cognitive then determines whether the foundational reason is practical or epistemic.
In my spare time, I drink single-malt whisky and dance salsa and bachata. Here are my performances from the Singapore International Latin Festival in 2018 and 2019.
