I am mainly working on topics in the field of phenomenology, philosophy of mind, philosophy of psychiatry, and cognitive science. I have written extensively on the philosophy of Edmund Husserl, and am working systematically on topics such as selfhood, self-consciousness, intersubjectivity, empathy, shame and collective intentionality. I am currently involved in 1) work on how to use phenomenology in qualitative research and in work 2) on how to understand the nature of the we.
