Personal profile

Research interests

I am a researcher working at the interface of philosophy and the cognitive and social sciences. I supervise HDR (higher degree by research) students; and I am lecturing in both theoretical and practical philosophy. My research investigates cultural phenomena that are distinctive of the ways human persons and groups learn and form their identities. This has led me to explore the creation of works of art, the functions of cultural learning, the roles of historical thought in decision making, the sciences of person identification, violence motivated by morals and identities, and the significance of Indigenous philosophies. My published works include an interdisciplinary framework for the science of art appreciation, a tripartite model of music appreciation, a model of the identification of human persons, and a study on the factors that cause violence. My research method is guided by the attempt to integrate into coherent models the descriptive insights provided by the psychological sciences with normative and contextualist inquiries led by philosophers, historians, and social scientists. I am passionately engaged in collaborations with Indigenous researchers, and I collaborate with Indigenous archaeologists to foster truth-telling and decolonisation in Australia. I hold a PhD in cognitive science from the EHESS in Paris and a PhD in philosophy from the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. I have studied and worked in academic roles in Australia, Canada, France, Turkey, and the United States.
