I work as a Margarita Salas Postdoctoral Researcher in the Departament of Philosophy at the University of Valencia (Spain).
Currently, I am on a research stay at the Unit of Excellence FiloLab-UGR, at the University of Granada. My research project focuses on the role that experience and beliefs about the world as a whole play in depression. I am also interested in the philosophy of psychedelics and, more generally, in altered states of consciousness.
I am a member of the research projects "The Social Roots of Mental Health: Agency and Normativity" and "Metaphysics of Biology: Processes and Dispositions".
Previously, I worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Logic and Theoretical Philosophy at the Complutense University of Madrid (2021-2022), where I did research on the philosophy of birth — in particular, on the experience of giving birth and on some metaphysical and epistemological aspects of birth care.
I also held a Predoctoral Researcher position in the Philosophy Departament at the University of Valencia (2016-2019), where I obtained my PhD in Philosophy, with a dissertation entitled Conceptions of Mental Illness: in Search of Reality.
