British Academy Post-Doctoral Research Fellow Department of Philosophy University of Manchester
I work in philosophy of emotion, value, and mind, with a strong interest in Nietzsche and the Phenomenologists
My research focuses on the intersection between philosophy of mind, emotion and value. I am now developing a new theory of emotions which holds that emotional experiences are constituted by what I call feelings towards value, which I argue are sui generis states. This theory captures the important connection between emotions and values, while being sensitive to the distinctive phenomenology of emotions. This research is to be published as a book, titled "Emotions as Feelings Towards Value: A Theory of Emotional Experience. I am also working on papers on pain experiences, visual content, and imagination.
