Research Interest: the propositional and conceptual nature of visual perception

My primary research interests are the philosophy of language, metaphysics and aesthetics. In my PhD project, I aim to question notions of conceptual and propositional representations as forming the basis for visual perception on the grounds that what we see is essentially ineffable Ineffability is a consequence of the multi-modal nature of perception.
