Before joining the program I obtained an MA in Analytic Philosophy from the University of Barcelona (2012), with a research paper on the compatibility of Frege’s principles of context and compositionality; a BPhil in Philosophy from the University of Oxford (2011), with a thesis entitled ‘Between Singularity and Generality: The Semantic Life of Proper Names”, supervised by Ofra Magidor. Before that I obtained a MA Honours in philosophy from the University of St Andrews (2009).

My philosophical interests are predominantly in the areas of philosophy of language and metaphysics, and particularly at the intersections of these (I have specific interests, for example, in existence, modality, the metaphysics of meaning, truthmaking theories, and vagueness). I have also interests in epistemology (including, for example, dogmatism, basic a priori knowledge, skepticism, contextualism and knowledge-how). I am also interested in philosophy of logic and the history of analytic philosophy, and, to a lesser degree, in ancient and early modern philosophy as well as political philosophy.

I’m currently working on an account of nonexistence, with a particular focus on reference and nonexistence. I work under the supervision of Manuel García Carpintero.

My non-philosophical interests include (in no particular order) literature, arts, cinema, painting (as an activity), crafts of all kinds, travelling and cooking.
