I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre for Ethics, Politics and Society of the University of Minho (Braga, Portugal) and board member of the UPF Centre for Animal Ethics (Barcelona, Spain). Previously, I was a lecturer in legal theory, moral and political philosophy at Pompeu Fabra University, where I received my PhD in moral philosophy.
The overall focus of my research is what we owe to wild animals, most of whom likely have lives of net negative suffering. I have also written about the badness of death, as well as the ethics of killing and saving animals, on hedonistic act-utilitarianism and our duties towards animals on rule-consequentialism. My latest work sketches a Kantian account of our duties to reengineer nature for the benefit of all sentient beings. I am currently working on developing a neo-republican account of the political standing of nonhuman animals.
