I earned my Ph.D. in philosophy in 2020 from the University of Miami, where I was supervised by Berit Brogaard, and also benefited from the advising of Magdalena Balcerak-Jackson and Eli Chudnoff.
As a Ph.D. student, I held fellowships from the Fulbright program (COMEXUS/Fulbright-Garcia Robles), the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (where I was kindly hosted for one year by E.J. Green and Alex Byrne) and the German Service for Academic Exchange (DAAD).
Previously I obtained an M.A. and a B.A. in philosophy, both from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).
For my M.A. my main areas of concentration were metaphysics and ontology. My thesis was directed by Edgar González Varela, and examined by Axel Barceló and Ricardo Salles.
For my B.A., I wrote a thesis on the connections between metaphysics and the good life in the philosophy of Spinoza, supervised by Luis Ramos-Alarcon.
One of my long-term career goals is to bring these early areas of interest together with my now core research in the empirically informed philosophy of consciousness.
