I got my B.A. from Universidad de Buenos Aires, and my Ph.D. from Columbia University, in 2006.

Currently I am Philosophy Professor at Universidad Torcuato Di Tella and UNTREF (Buenos Aires); I am also a Permanent Researcher at the CONICET (National Council for Scientific and Technical Research), Instituto de Filosofía, University of Buenos Aires.

I'm mainly interested in both formal and mainstream epistemology, as well as in philosophy of science, decision theory, and philosophy of logic.
