I am currently invited assistant professor of philosophy at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Porto, Portugal. My research interests have focused mainly on the philosophy of music, the ontology of artworks, art and social kinds, the nature of aesthetic value and the relationship between aesthetics and ethics. I have also been a translator of philosophy for 15 years.
Since 2010, I have been an integrated member of the Institute of Philosophy of the University of Porto, in both Reason, Politics and Society (medieval and early modern philosophy) and Mind, Language & Action (modern and contemporary philosophy) research groups.
I completed my PhD in 2016 with a thesis on the philosophy of music, The Art of Tonal Sound: Music as a Social Kind and Natural Kind Activity (see Publications).
