I am a Marie Curie Research Fellow with the Law & Philosophy research group of the University Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. I am also an associate of the LOGOS group in Barcelona and of the LanCog research group, in the Philosophy Centre of the University of Lisbon. In the past, I have held appointments at the Universities of Lisbon, of Barcelona and of Maryland - University College Europe. I received my PhD in Philosophy from Stirling. I also studied at the Universities of Lisbon, where I received a BA, and St. Andrews, where I received an MLitt (in the St. Andrews-Stirling postgraduate programme).
I specialize in philosophy of language, philosophical logic, and have interests in metaphysics, metaethics, feminist philosophy, and philosophy of law. I have published on the ambiguity of negation, bivalence and paradoxes, singular reference and object-dependent thoughts, relativism, disagreement, the content vs. force/mode distinction, aesthetic predicates, expressivism, and value dispositionalism. My recent work focuses on the nature of practical disagreements, retractions, epistemic and deontic modals,
pejoratives, and on social categories and social construction.
I am co-editor of the open-access journal Disputatio.
