I am a Permanent Research Fellow of the Institute for Philosophical Research at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), and currently a Visiting Scholar in the Philosophy Department at Rutgers University. Before that I have worked at Boston University, Boston College and the University of Tübingen.
In 2010, I received my PhD from the Department of Philosophy at Boston University under the supervision of the late Jaakko Hintikka. Before moving to the New World, as an undergraduate I studied Philosophy in Italy at the Scuola Normale Superiore and the University of Pisa (where, due to the high concentration of tourists, I must report that it's no longer possible to indulge in this kind of activities).
My research focus is the interplay of issues in metaphysics, logic and language—especially the metaphysics of modality, the foundations of modal logic, counterpart theory, conditionals, vagueness and indeterminacy, metametaphysics and metaontology, formal ontology and assorted Lewisiana.
I am editor in chief of Crítica: Revista Hispanoamericana de Filosofía, panel member of Thought, and editor of the PhilPapers categories Essentialism and Quantified Modal Logic and Essentialism and De Re Modality, Misc.
