I worked on my dissertation ’Self-Involving Representationalism: a naturalistic theory of phenomenal consciousness’ at the university of Barcelona within the LOGOS research group, under the supervision of David Pineda. I received my PhD in June 2011, which was honored excellent cum laude (the maximum grade awarded). My examiners were Martine Nida-Ruemelin , Katalin Farkas and Pepa Toribio.

I am mainly interested in the Philosophy of Mind and Cognitive Sciences. In particular, in naturalistic theories of consciousness,  in the relation between phenomenology and representation and between consciousness and cognition.
