Adrian is an associate professor at the University of Copenhagen's Philosophy Section and Center for Subjectivity Research. His research in the project concerns the unity of the body, its role in spatial self-consciousness, and the nature of perspectival structure in thought and experience. He recently co-edited a volume titled The Subject's Matter for the MIT Press, with Frédérique de Vignemont.
