My main research is on experiences of absence. I am interested in the general mechanisms of absence experiences in perception and cognition, the phenomenological forms these experiences take, and their expression in culture and art.
I'm a research associate at the University of Amsterdam. Before Amsterdam, I was a lecturer at the University of Bristol, and before that, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Australian National University.
In my spare time, I like to blog about absences, take pictures of absences, and paint.
