Research group: LanCog
I am a researcher with the LOGOS group at the University of Barcelona. Between 2014 and 2016, I was a Marie Curie Research Fellow with the Law & Philosophy group of the University Pompeu Fabra. I am also a collaborator of the LanCog 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 the Univerity of 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, 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 and conflicts, retraction, epistemic and deontic modals, pejoratives, and on social categories and social construction.
I am co-editor of the open-access journal Disputatio.
