Cameron is a PhD student working primarily on issues in the philosophy of mind and consciousness. He has recently developed a special fascination with the metaphysics and phenomenology of metaphorical thought. Cameron is also interested in modal epistemology, particularly in the question of whether and how thought experiments can justify beliefs about the world, and in the philosophy of astrophysics. His annotated bibliography on the latter topic is forthcoming in Philosophy of Astrophysics, an edited volume from Synthese Library.

Outside of philosophy, Cameron likes to cycle on- and off-road, to play various percussion instruments, and to learn about art, architecture, and urbanism. He has recently become a part-time barista, thereby solidifying his status as a stereotypical philosophy student.
