I am a philosopher working on issues of philosophy of language, metaphysics and philosophical semantics.

I am very interested in classical problems of philosophy of language such as reference and meaning, but my current research interests are centered on the structure and representational character of propositions.

My PhD research is funded by the FPI Program of the University of Basque Country (UPV/EHU)
