I am a PhD student on the Analytic Philosophy program at UB, University of Barcelona, under the supervision of Professor José Antonio Díez. I also teach the practical part of the course "Introduction to Logic" at UB.

Before that I graduated in BBA at ESADE (2012) and in Philosophy at UB (2015). I got a MSc in International Management at ESADE (2013) and half of a MA in Analytic Philosophy at UB (2016). I also completed two years of Physics at UB (2014-2016).


My main research focuses on the concept of truthlikeness -both from a semantic and epistemic dimensions-, particularly on the closeness to the truth of scientific laws and its relation to scientific realism.

I'm also interested on the philosophy of video games and Game Studies.
