I am a graduate student in the philosophy department at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. The focus of my research is in philosophy of mind. I'm interested in the nature of conscious experience. Recently, I've been working on questions concerning the unity of consciousness. Is consciousness unified? If so, in what sense? Is it necessarily unified? Does it depend on or is it brought about by self-consciousness in some way?

"The aim of philosophy, abstractly formulated, is to understand how things in the broadest possible sense of the term hang together in the broadest possible sense of the term." Wilfrid Sellars, Philosophy and the Scientific Image of Man
