His current research interests are in philosophy of psychology, philosophy of music, philosophy of the self and emotions, and ethics. Dr. Jenkins has had a lifelong interest in psychology (both research and clinical) and the arts, particularly painting, photography, film, dance, and theater, as well as rock, jazz, classical, and avant-garde music.
