My research focuses on questions in philosophy of mind, language, and the cognitive sciences, broadly construed. I am interested in how language and other higher cognitive abilities are grounded in more basic, embodied abilities and processes, such as emotion, perception, action, and preverbal communication. My approach to these questions is based in the European phenomenological tradition, in particular the work of Husserl, Heidegger, and Merleau-Ponty. I also draw from analytic philosophy; 4E cognitive sciences; and empirical research in psychology, linguistics, and neuroscience. My work also increasingly engages the Indian philosophical tradition, especially the yoga school.
