Current research

  • Questioning the use of phenomenological interviews (2nd person method) to understand exceptional cases of embodiment, especially bodily self-consciousness of people living with Cerebral Palsy.
  • Questioning neurological and computational models for explaining 'motor control' by focus on Cerebral Palsy as a case study.
  • Studying the role of bodily self-consciousness in social understanding by looking at people with Cerebral Palsy that suffer from motor impairment and an impaired sense of agency. 
  • Applying research from Phenomenology and Embodied Cognitive Science to the development of rehabilitation strategies and technologies for brain damage, primarily Cerebral Palsy.

Areas of interest

Collaborative Philosophy: how philosophy is (can be) relevant for, and contribute to, other academic disciplines and non-academic areas.  

Collaborative and Interdisciplinary Research: what are the possibilities for collaborative research, what role can philosophy play in collaboration and how can we contribute to the development of collaboration and interdisciplinary research?
