Introduction
My research is primarily in phenomenology and philosophy of mind and language. My approach to these topics is pluralistic, drawing from phenomenology, analytic philosophy, cognitive science, and empirical research in psychology and neuroscience. I also engage diverse historical and cultural traditions, including Indian and ancient Greek philosophy. My publications have recently been featured in European Journal of Philosophy, Synthese, and Philosophy East and West.

I argue that Merleau-Ponty’s views are at odds with those of enactivists. Merleau-Ponty only applied phenomenological descriptions to the life-worlds of sentient anima...

This paper combines insights into the nature of language from yogic mantra meditative and phenomenology. I argue that phenomenologists can gain insights into the formative experiences that shape linguistic meaning from mantra meditators. Meanwhile, phenomenology can offer an original perspective on debates in mantra research concerning the linguist...

Radical and autopoietic enactivists disagree concerning how to understand the concept of sense-making in enactivist discourse and the extent of its distribution within the organic domain. I situate this debate within a broader conflict of commitments to naturalism on the part of radical enactivists, and to phenomenology on the part of autopoietic e...
