Jakub Mihalik is a researcher at the Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences. Currently, he is a Fulbright Visiting Scholar at New York University, doing research in the philosophy of mind and consciousness. He grew up in Prague and studied philosophy at Charles University, earning his PhD in 2016. In his PhD thesis, entitled Consciousness in Nature: A Russellian Approach, he investigated the relation between qualitative consciousness and physical brain processes, arguing for a non-reductive approach to consciousness inspired by the insights of Bertrand Russell. From 2019 to 2021, Jakub carried out research at the University of Hertfordshire (UK), examining relations between the inner structure and metaphysical theories of consciousness. Apart from being a philosopher, Jakub is a husband and a father, as well as a guitar player, singer and songwriter in an indie-rock band that released two albums.
