I am currently a lecturer ("profesor lector") within the Serra Húnter Programme at the Departament of Philosophy of the Universitat de Barcelona. In the academic year 22/23, I've been visiting researcher at the University of Geneva and visiting member of the project The Metaphysics of Quantum Objects, led by prof. Claudio Calosi. Before this, I have been postdoctoral fellow at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and, even before, PhD candidate at the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science of the Complutense University of Madrid. My research focuses on the philosophical foundations of quantum mechanics and, more particularly, of Bohmian mechanics. More generally, I am interested in the connection between physics and metaphysics and a host of topics concerning the philosophy and methodology of science (explanation, representation, confirmation). I have also interests in the history and philosophy of yoga and the non-dualist traditions in India and elsewhere.
