I studied Psychology at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM), doing the specialization in clinical psychology and an internship at the Acute Psychiatric Unit of the Hospital Infanta Sofia of Madrid. After my bachelor, I studied a master in Neurobiology and Cognitive Neuroscience (at the UAM) and an MSC in Mind, Language and Embodied Cognition at the University of Edinburgh. I am interested in doing research on mental disorders, for which having a clear conceptualisation of them becomes essential.
I studied my Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy at the Universidad de Guadalajara, Mexico, and graduated from the MSc Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh in 2018. My interests include philosophy of mind and philosophy of cognitive science, particularly the issues concerning human agency and the experience of agency, including disorders that produce an abnormal phenomenology of agency -i.e. schizophrenia, alien hand syndrome.
I studied psychology at Dalhousie University and later, worked in the social, health and education sector. I am currently working towards an MSc in Mind, Language and Embodied Cognition at the University of Edinburgh, focusing on an embodied, enactive and extended approach to cognition. I am exploring how these approaches are being applied to mental health, especially, how they can account for the phenomenology of psychiatric conditions and experiences.
I graduated from the University of Puget Sound with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy in 2016, and, latterly, with a Master of Science in Mind, Language, and Embodied Cognition at the University of Edinburgh in 2018.
I have a strong interest in philosophy of cognitive science, and in questions of agency and rationality. I wrote my dissertation at Edinburgh on the sufficiency and necessity of explicit mental attitudes for diachronic agency and moral responsibility given the evidence from the literature on confabulation.
