I studied philosophy and psychology at Coimbra Univ and Univ Catholique de Louvain. In 2006, I obtained my PhD in Philosophy and Social Sciences at EHESS-Paris with a dissertation on time, selfhood and cognition based on Kant’s critical works.
My main post-doc projects focused on “Self as a Unifying Process: Consciousness, Cognition and Action” and “Being-in-Stories: The Embodied Poetics of Selfhood”. In my research career I've also been: 1) the PI in a research seminar on the “Self as production of truth”, hosted by Collège international de philosophie (CIPh, Paris, France); 2) a Visiting scholar at New York University (under Prof. B. Longuenesse’s supervision) and Columbia U. (under Prof. F. Neuhouser’s supervision); 3) a Stagiaire Post-doc at the Center for Research in Applied Epistemology (CREA, Paris, under the mentorship of Prof. J. Petitot); 4) a Professeur invité at EHESS, to present a seminar for Graduate students on Biographical Time and Experience; 5) the joint organizer (with S. Nour) of a research seminar on Cosmopolitan Justice at CIPh, Paris.
Drawing from my own research record and from my network of institutions and colleagues, I’ve conceived and launched an international, interdisciplinary, research project titled “Poetics of Selfhood: Memory, Imagination, and Narrativity” (PTDC/MHC-FIL/4203/2012).
Besides, I've participated in several research projects: 1) Subject and passivity, at Lisbon U; 2) Philosophy, Medicine, and Society, at Lisbon U.; 3) Luso-Spanish Integrated Action on Leibniz, at New U of Lisbon and Granada U.; 4) Medical Art and Scientific Intelligibility, at New U of Lisbon; 5) The conception of Nature in modern medical/philosophical thought, at New U. of Lisbon; 6) Affectivity and Liminality (ESF, Open U., UK).
My current research relates to time consciousness, narrative identity, hermeneutics of life-stories, phenomenology of intersubjectivity, virtue justice and care ethics.
