Lia Curtis-Fine

Lia graduated from the University of North Carolina Asheville in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and a minor in Psychology focusing on Neuroscience. Lia’s main research interests in philosophy are philosophy of consciousness, philosophy of cognitive science, early modern philosophy of mind, and neurophenomenology. The questions that are of the most interest to Lia are primarily those pertaining to the nature of minds and consciousness. She is also quite interested in inquiries surrounding the following: the cognitive components of perception, mental causation, intentionality, memory, attention, learning, and more. Lia finds it especially interesting to look at these topics through both the historical and the contemporary lenses, rather than one or the other alone. When she is not doing philosophy, Lia can be found cooking vegan and gluten free foods, hiking, running, reading, meditating, or practicing yoga.
