I am a philosopher based at Uppsala University (Sweden), where I recently completed my PhD (Aesthetic Valuing and the Self, 2023). 

Starting in September 2024, I will begin a 3-year International Postdoc Grant funded by the Swedish Research Council. My research project, Aesthetic Rationality: Coherence and Respect, will be based at the Department of Philosophy at Uppsala University and the University of Southampton (UK).

Recent publications include work on the nature of aesthetic taste, the epistemology of aesthetic emotions, rational requirements and aesthetic akrasia. 

In 2019, I was awarded the Fabian Dorsch Essay Prize from the European Society for Aesthetics. In 2021, I received the Irene Chayes New Voices Award, organised by the American Society for Aesthetics.

Before moving to Sweden, I worked as an art gallery assistant at ARTNUEVE. Prior to this, I completed an M.A. in Art History at Autonomous University of Madrid— in collaboration with the Museum Reina Sofía (2014)—, and a degree in Philosophy at the University of Murcia (2013).

I co-organise the Uppsala Higher Seminars in Aesthetics with Prof. Elisabeth Schellekens.

Outside of philosophy, I also enjoy writing poetry and short stories. I was shortlisted for the Alpine Writing Fellowship (2020) and awarded the CreaJoven Poetry Prize (2008). I have a poem about the many times I've fallen on ice in The Skirt Chronicles.
