I’m a philosopher interested in interdisciplinary approaches to emotions, particularly in the frontier between philosophy, psychology and neuroscience.
I wrote my doctoral dissertation at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain and the Institut für Philosophie at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. In my dissertation I examined some challenges that scientific theories of emotions face and that threaten the elimination of emotions from our scientific vocabulary. I argued that in order to meet these challenges, we must take a step back and examine our folk emotional vocabulary in order to ‘reconstitute’ the phenomena, and then make clear on what grounds can a scientific theory of emotions construct projectible categories that capture emotion kinds. The dissertation was qualified summa cum laude and is published at the HU Berlin’s Open Access repository.
At the time I am an adjunct lecturer at the Escuela de Ciencias Humanas at Universidad del Rosario (Bogotá, Colombia). In the past I had the chance of being a visiting scholar at the Instituto de Investigaciones Filosóficas of the Sociedad Argentina de Análisis Filosófico (SADAF).
I am currently looking for an opportunity as a postdoctoral researcher. If you have any information, please contact me!
