Barcelona 1961. I studied Philosophy at the U. of Barcelona (BA 1984), where I did my PhD (1992) with a dissertation on Measurement Theories. I have been professor at the U. Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona, 1986-2006) and at U. Barcelona (since 2006); Visiting Scholar at U. München, NYU, LSE and U. Pittsburgh; and Visiting Professor at several universities in Mexico and Argentina. My main research area is philosophy of science, in particular measurement theories, structuralism, scientific explanation and representation, and semantics of scientific concepts; but I am also interested in epistemology, philosophy of language and philosophy of mind.
