My research focuses primarily on topics in philosophy of psychology, including the nature of belief, mental architecture (especially dual-process theories of reasoning), consciousness, and cognitive theories of psychopathology.
I have written textbooks for several Open University courses, and enjoy the challenge of presenting philosophical arguments in an accessible and engaging way. I am currently developing philosophy of mind teaching materials for children.
Outside philosophy, I am researching the history and culture of Crete, and am working on several creative writing projects.
This website contains information about me, my research, my publications (both articles & chapters and books), selected talks and lectures I have given, and more. It also makes available eprints of my work, podcasts, and lecture presentations.
The website is also the home of my blog, A Divided Mind, where I shall be writing about philosophical issues in psychology and cognitive science, as well as about life in Crete and other topics that catch my interest.
