I'm a researcher with the LOGOS Group at the Philosophy Department of the University of Barcelona.
Between 2014 and 2016, I was a Marie Curie Research Fellow with the Law & Philosophy research group of the University Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. Previously, I held appointments at the Universities of Lisbon, Barcelona and Maryland - University College Europe.
I received my PhD in Philosophy from Stirling. I also studied at the Universities of Lisbon (BA/Licenciatura), and St. Andrews (MLitt in the St. Andrews-Stirling postgraduate programme).
I specialize in philosophy of language, and have interests in metaphysics, metaethics, feminist philosophy, and legal and political philosophy. My recent work focuses on disagreement, retraction, epistemic and deontic modals, pejoratives, dispositionalism about value, shifting concepts, social ontology, and on how political speech motivates social action. You'd be wrong to assume that there's no relation between these topics!
On this site you can find my CV, links to my publications, information on research grants, and teaching materials for my courses. In the events section, you find news and some discussion about recent or upcoming events.
I've found that I've accepted too many commitments. Here are the more pressing things I'm finishing to write:
I will be teaching Metaethics in the Aphil master at the University of Barcelona during the first semester 2017/2018.
Last academic year, I convened a reading group on Value Talk.
I also convened a lunchtime reading group on Kate Manne's Down Girl: the Logic of Misogyny. Highly recommend her book!
Interuniversity workshop Mind, Art, and Morality Language & Power organized with Esa Díaz León in May 22-23 at the University of Barcelona.
I presented my paper "Amelioration vs Perversion" in the Legal Theory Festival in the University of Edinburgh in June 2018, also at the Valencia Philosophy Lab Colloquium in May 2018.
And I was a discussant at the Symposium on Kate Manne's book Down Girl: The Logic of Misogyny organized by Vera Tripodi and Carlotta Pavese, in June 2018..
