Curriculum Vitae

I hold a PhD in philosophy of science by the University of Barcelona (02/2020).  Before, I got a MA in Analytic Philosophy and another Ma in Education (philosophy teacher) at the same university. I did a BA in Philosophy at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. 

In my dissertation, supervised by professor José Díez, I argue for a weak explanatory pluralism in biology, challenging the mechanistic approach at the light of mathematical and covering law models of explanation. 

My research was funded by an FPI grant of the Spanish Ministry of Education. 

I am currently teaching Philosofy of Science and Logic at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, and english at middle school. 

I will be working for the next two years  ( late 2022- late 2024) at the UAB with professor Thomas Sturm under a Margarita Salas position. There, I will be working in an HPS project, revising Philip Kitcher's theory of science, rationality and expanation.
