   I am generally interested in scientific practice, esp. the construction and evaluation of models in relation with experimentation, and in perception, esp. the embodiement of perception; and in what philosophy of perception and philosophy of experimentation can learn from one another.

Recently, I have more specifically focused on the issue of experimental reliability and the role of relevance judgments in modeling, experimentation, and reliability.
