Assistant Professor

Research group: LanCog

I am an assistant professor in the Philosophy Department of the University of Barcelona, and a researcher with the LOGOS Group and the Barcelona Institute of Analytic Philosophy (BIAP). Between 2014 and 2016, I was a Marie Curie Research Fellow with the Law & Philosophy group of the University Pompeu Fabra. I have also held appointments at the Universities of Lisbon, and of Maryland – University College Europe. I’m a member of the Steering Committee of the European Society for Analytic Philosophy (ESAP) from 2014 to 2020. I was the co-editor of the open-access journal Disputatio from 2008 to 2017.


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 M.Litt (in the St. Andrews-Stirling postgraduate programme).


I specialize in philosophy of language, and have interests in metaethics, feminist philosophy, and social and legal philosophy. My work focuses on the nature of conflicts, on the social and political dimension of discourse, on conceptual variability, and the nature of social kinds.
