Ph.D. University of Western Ontario.  I am interested in the nature of psychological explanation, both scientifc and commonsense, and the relation between the two.  My recent work has focused on computational models of our cognitive capacities, developing an account of the role of representational content in such models. I also have research interests in perception in general, and the theory of vision in particular, including the history of vision, and in computational neuroscience.
