I studied philosophy at the University of Valencia, where I got my PhD in 2002 for research on Hegel's Philosophy of Right. During that time I benefited of a doctoral fellowship awarded by the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science at the Department of Moral and Political Philosophy and could visit the Universities of Muenster and Bochum as invited researcher. After the dissertation I spent two years as a research fellow at the Schelling-Kommission of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences (2003-2005). Before and after that period I taught introductory courses in philosophy and history of philosophy in various secondary schools. In 2005 I was Visiting Scholar at the University of Santiago de Compostela.

During 2006-2009 I was Assistant Professor of the Philosophy Department at the University of Valencia. In 2009 I became Assistant Professor of the Department of Metaphysics and Epistemology. Since 2012 I work there as Associate Professor. Currently I lead, together with my colleague Prof. Manuel Jiménez Redondo, a research project on Hegel's philosophy of action.

My research is mainly dedicated to German Idealism and its contemporary reception. Other philosophical interests include the history of epistemology, the philosophy of biology and the philosophy of action.

Contemporary authors whom I have devoted a special attention to are Daniel Dennett, Robert Pippin, Robert Brandom, Wilfrid Sellars, Slavoj Žižek, John McDowell, Alasdair MacIntyre, Pirmin Stekeler-Weithofer, Vittorio Hösle, Dieter Henrich and Richard Rorty. I am interested particularly in debates on transcendental philosophy, naturalism regarding mind and knowledge and the concept of self-determination.
