I got my PhD at the University of Barcelona (Department of Logic, History and Philosophy of Science) in January 2016. The committee consisted of Sanford Goldberg (Northwestern), Patrick Greenough (St. Andrews), and Josep Macià (UB). I obtained "excelente cum laude". 

In my dissertation, I propose and defend a view according to which committing oneself to knowing the proposition expressed counts as an assertion of that proposition. My work was supervised by Manuel Garcia-Carpintero and Sven Rosenkranz.

I have been a visiting student researcher at Berkeley (2014) and Rutgers (2012). Before coming to the University of Barcelona, I received an MA in Philosophy from Central European University (2010) and completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Belgrade in 2009. 

My research interests also include philosophy of mind, epistemology and later Wittgenstein.
