My primary research interests lie in philosophy of mind and cognitive science; more specifically, I am interested in predictive processing, metacognition, consciousness, object perception, and conceptual thought.
Currently, under the supervision of Dr. Ophelia Deroy, I am working on my thesis investigating the possibility of extending the predictive processing framework to higher-order cognitive processes. After completing my PhD, I intend to continue my career as a theoretical cognitive scientist (or “empirically-informed philosopher”) in hopes of contributing to our understanding of human and machine cognition by integrating knowledge from various disciplines including linguistics, psychology, computer-, and neuroscience.
Before joining Dr. Deroy’s research group, Cognition, Values & Behaviour, I received an MSc degree in Mind, Language & Embodied Cognition from the University of Edinburgh. There I wrote my thesis on prediction and efficient language processing under the supervision of Dr. Andy Clark.
Previously, I also obtained an HBSc in linguistics and mathematics from the University of Toronto, where I was a laboratory manager and research assistant at the Consciousness and Wisdom Studies Lab in 2015-2017 as well as a research assistant at Technologies for Aging Gracefully Lab in 2016.
