André Sant'Anna

Postdoc, Université Grenoble Alpes


Prior to coming to Grenoble, I completed my PhD in Philosophy at the University of Otago in New Zealand, where I wrote a thesis on memory and perception. My current research interests are in philosophy of mind and philosophy of psychology, more specifically on the following topics:

  • the relationship between episodic memory and different forms of mental time travel;
  • the nature of mnemonic representations;
  • the nature of the objects of memory.
