I am currently an FCT Junior Researcher at the Centre for the Philosophy of Sciences of the University of Lisbon. I am also an External Member of the  Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) of LMU and an associate member of the LanCog research group of the Centre of Philosophy of the University of Lisbon.  Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the MCMP, and before that I held an Assistant Lectureship in the Philosophy Department of the University of St Andrews.

I did my PhD in Philosophy at the Arché Research Centre, University of St Andrews. I was very fortunate to have had Stephen Read and Gabriel Uzquiano as my PhD supervisors and Bob Stalnaker and Aaron Cotnoir as my examiners During my PhD I was also a visiting scholar at MIT’s Department of Linguistics and Philosophy and at the University of Oslo. Before going to St Andrews I did an MSc in Logic at the  ILLC, University of Amsterdam.

My research is mainly in the areas of metaphysics, logic and the philosophy of logic, and the philosophy of language.  My current projects are on the metaphysics of modality, the semantics of variables, theoretical equivalence in metaphysics, and the normativity of logic. In the past I have also worked on the semantics of ‘knowing wh-‘ constructions, proof theoretic stability and hylomorphic mereology. I am also interested in topics in the philosophy of mathematics, epistemology and the theory of rationality.
