M.C. Hammer

In 2019, I wrote an essay for the online magazine Aeon, called "Do You Compute?" This essay was recently tweeted (twice!) by hip hop icon, MC Hammer. Earlier this year I published a paper, "Mental Structures," in the journal Nous. I also was awarded a McPherson Eye Research Institute Visiting Scholar Award from the University of Wisconsin-Madison to facilitate my collaboration with Prof. Karen Schloss (Psychology, UW-Madison) on visual reasoning. This July I was awarded a $50,000 "Insight Development Grant" from the Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) for my project “Forms of Mind.”
