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 have taught Philosofy of Science and Logic at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, and english and philosophy at secondary school. 

At the moment I am working at the UAB with professor Thomas Sturm under a Margarita Salas position. My project turns around the philosophy of science of Philip Kitcher, his naturalism and his defense of epistemic values as essential to characterise science and its advancement.
