Ashleigh comes from a background in academic philosophy, and has just completed her doctorate in philosophy of cognitive science at the university of Edinburgh. Ashleigh's research interests are interdisciplinary and revolve around multisensory integration; the subject of how the collaboration between the senses, such as sight, touch and audition, shape and transform our cognitive and mental capabilities. In particular, she is interested in the multisensory processes which support motor control and the perception of our body. Ashleigh is currently working on two projects which have emerged out of her doctoral thesis which she hopes will help shape future cognitive scientific theorising in philosophy, cognitive and developmental psychology, and neuroscience. Alongside her research, Ashleigh has taught on many different undergraduate philosophy courses over the past four years which align closely with her other philosophical interests including ancient philosophy, philosophy of mind and language, and ethics.
