I was educated at the London School of Economics and the University of California, Berkeley. I have taught at universities in Australia, New Zealand and the United States. I joined the Department of Philosophy at the University of York in 2013. I have published a number of articles and books, mostly on the arts and their relation to the mind. My next book is Fiction and Cognition (Oxford University Press, forthcoming).
Member of the Humanities Research Centre Peer Review College.
I work on many aspects of the arts: literature, film and painting, the narrative arts and their role in learning, the place of the aesthetic in archaeological explanation, the nature of adaptation, irony in pictures and in language. I am keen to supervise students hoping to work in these and related areas.
I am currently working on a book on learning from fiction (Fiction and Cognition, oxford University press, forthcoming).
