I'm a researcher at the Philosophy Department of the University of Barcelona, with the LOGOS Group and the BIAP - Barcelona Institute for Analytic Philosophy. I'm also an associate member of the Philosophy Center of the University of Lisbon.
I specialize in philosophy of language, but work also in metaethics, feminist philosophy, and legal and social philosophy. My recent work focuses on disagreement and conflicts, evaluative and normative discourse, including pejoratives and dangerous speech, and on the interaction between language and social reality.
I received my PhD in Philosophy from Stirling. I also studied at the Universities of Lisbon (BA/Licenciatura), and St. Andrews (MLitt)
I was awarded a European Commission Marie Scklowdoska-Curie Research Fellow in 2013, an IKERBASQUE fellowship in 2014 (that I declined), and I'm currently developing a Societal Challenges project funded by the Spanish government.

BIAP -- The new Barcelona Institute of Analytic Philosophy -- exists! The 1st BIAP Workshop: Disagreements will be held at the UB (c/Montalegre 6, 4th floor, Sala Gran) on January 24th-25th. I'll be giving a talk on disagreements with bald-faced liars.
I gave a talk in The Night of Philosophy at UNESCO in Paris on 16th November. I talked about how philosophy of language can help us navigate the propaganda and disinformation of the current news cycle.
I also give the same talk the following week, at the Workshop on Democracy, Rights, and Populism: Contested Concepts and Rhetorical Uses at the Università degli studie del Piemonte Orientale in Vercelli, Italy.
