I am working on the broad field of History and Philosophy of Ideas, but focusing exclusively on the narrower sub-field of Darwinism and its socio-philosophical implications.
In recent years, I have combined the philosophical study of Darwinism with Computational Corpus Linguistics methodologies. My aim has been to take a deeper look at Darwin’s language and, thus, to be able to draw stronger conclusions about the conceptual heritage we have received from Darwinism, which is a constitutive pillar of the contemporary scientific worldview.
After two years of research as post-doctoral fellow at the University of Leeds (UK), School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science, Centre for History and Philosophy of Science, I am now a lecturer at the University of the Basque Country (UPV-EHU), attached to the Philosophy department in San Sebastián (Spain), Faculty of Education, Philosophy and Anthropology. I’m currently teaching at (1) Facultad de Educación, Filosofía y Antropología, Campus of Guipúzcoa and (2) Facultad de Relaciones Laborales y Trabajo Social, Campus of Álava.
I collaborate with IAS-Research. Centre for Life, Mind and Society research group and the Applied Evolutionary Epistemology Lab, and I am Executive Secretary of the biannual International Ontology Congress.
I completed studies in Philosophy at the University of the Basque Country:
– B.A. in Philosophy, 2011.
– M.A. Filosofía, Ciencia y Valores, 2012.
– Ph.D. Filosofía en un mundo Global program, 2016.
I have been awarded by the University of the Basque Country with the Doctorate Extraordinary Award (2019) for my Ph.D. thesis.
