Emma Borg joined the Philosophy Department at the University of Reading in 1998, having taken her M.Phil and Ph.D at University College London.

Her main research interests lie in philosophy of language (where she defends a position known as ‘minimal semantics’) and philosophy of mind (where she is interested in issues such as the nature of pain, mindreading, mirror neurons and animal cognition). She has published widely in these areas.

Emma has been Head of the Philosophy Department and is currently Director of the Reading Centre for Cognition Research.
