I am currently studying for a PhD in Philosophy at the School of Arts and Humanities of the University of Lisbon, where I previously obtained my BA (2018) and MA (2022), with a dissertation on animalism. I work primarily in Metaphysics, with some incursions in the Philosophy of Art. I am mainly interested in the problem of personal identity and the ontology of music. I am also interested in the metaphysics of time and bioethics. When I am not doing philosophy, I play drums with Them Flying MonkeysCAIO and Hause Plants.
