Office: Skinner 1118C

I started a Ph.D at the University of Maryland, College Park on 2016 with a Fulbright scholarship. Before that, I did my MA at the University of British Columbia, Canada, as a fully sponsored student from "La Caixa". Between the two, I enjoyed a year as a visiting student at Logos, University of Barcelona. During my undergrad, I spent some time in the following institutions: - Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain. - University of California at Santa Barbara, CA, USA. - Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), Madrid, Spain.

My main area of interest is cognitive science and philosophy of mind, although I am also interested in philosophy of biology (specially mechanistic explanation), and applied ethics (specially bioethics).
