I am a philosopher of science at Chapman University.

My research is driven by two questions:

(i) What is the reality underlying quantum mechanics?

(ii) What is the relation between mind and brain?

Most recently, I have been focusing on the following issues:

(i) Extending the class of dynamical collapse theories; clarifying the status of probability and locality in many worlds theories; and generalizing Bell’s theorem beyond quantum predictions.

(ii) Experimentally testing the integrated information theory (IIT) of consciousness using filled/non-filled pairs; extending IIT to quantum mechanics to render the consciousness-causes-collapse hypothesis testable; and computational approaches to free will.

Here you can find my papers, presentations and interviews, event schedule, and courses I teach, on these and related topics.
