My research is focused on psychological underpinnings of philosophical concepts and theories. Recently, main themes of my work are personal identity, beginning and end of life, and memory. I hold MA in Philosophy from Vilnius University, Lithuania. Currently, I am a PhD candidate at the Centre for Philosophy of Memory, Genoble Alpes University, France. In my thesis at Grenoble (supervised by prof. Kourken Michaelian), I apply the methods of experimental philosophy to issues in philosophy of personal identity and memory.
I edit Experimental Philosophy: Persons on philpapers.
