Universitat de Barcelona


I am ICREA Research Professor at the Departament de Filosofia of the Universitat de Barcelona. I did my PhD in Barcelona (visiting ANU for a short while). I was Arché Postdoc in St Andrews (2004-06), Fullbright-GenCat Postdoc at NYU (2006-07), ICREA Researcher (2007-12) and then RyC (2012-13). I have published papers in Analysis, Erkenntnis, Mind, Noûs, Philosophers' Imprint, Philosophical Studies, Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society, and Synthèse, among others.

Research interests

I work on matters issuing from words -vagueness, contextualism/relativism, rigidity- and issues where words don’t really matter (much) -truthmaking, grounding, time, disagreement, values-. In between, I have an increasing interest in topics around gender, sex, and sexualities.
