I am a predoctoral researcher at the Department of Linguistics and Basque Studies (UPV/EHU), whose main interests are in philosophy of language, philosophy of mind and epistemology.


My present work is focused on how concept acquisition is explained by similarity-based theories. I am also working on the invariantist-contextualist debate, the representational character of concepts, and the circularity problem in the empiricist accounts of concepts
 

In the past I was funded by the FPI Program of the University of the Basque Country.
