Tiina C Rosenqvist is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Dartmouth Society of Fellows with an affiliation with the Department of Philosophy. She completed her PhD in philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania in 2023. Her current focus is empirically-guided philosophy of visual perception, though she is interested in a wide variety of issues having to do with how humans and other animals perceive, think about, and interact with their environments. She likes to think about color and pain, about the connections between intellectual traditions, and about how we should approach metaphysical and epistemological questions relating to perception and cognition.
