Biography

I did my undergraduate degree at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, an MPhil at St Andrews and a PhD at the University of Michigan. I was a lecturer at the University of Birmingham for six years. I've been at UCL since 2000.

Research Summary

I am interested in the relationship between reality and our representations of it in thought and language. My main concern is to understand the consequences of the fact that our characterisation of this relationship is itself a representation of reality in thought or language. I work in areas of epistemology, metaphysics and the philosophies of mind and language that address these problems.

Teaching Summary

I have taught courses in epistemology, metaphysics and logic, and on Ludwig Wittgenstein's philosophy.
