Hi! I am Roberto. I work mainly in analytic metaphysics.
My current research interests lie in the philosophy of time, theories of parthood and location, and metaphysical grounding.
The following are four recent papers of mine I’m particularly fond of (for more publications, drafts etc. go to Publications):
Composition as identity and the innocence of mereology
Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, 2022
Universalism doesn’t entail extensionalism
Two notions of fusion and the landscape of extensionality
Philosophical Studies, 2021
Open future, supervaluationism and the growing-block theory: a stage-theoretical account
So far, I’ve held academic positions at the following universities:
- Complutense University of Madrid (2021-2022) – Ramón y Cajal Fellow (roughly equivalent to Assistant Professor) at the Department of Logic and Theoretical Philosophy
- University of Hamburg (2017-2021) – Research Fellow and member of the Phlox Group
- University of Barcelona (2015-2017) – Beatriu de Pinós/Marie Curie Research Fellow and senior member of the LOGOS Research Group
- Universidad Nacional y Autónoma de México (UNAM) (2013-2015) – Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Instituto de Investigaciones Filosóficas
I obtained my PhD in Philosophy from the University of Nottingham in 2012 with a thesis titled ‘The true future of the open future’. My supervisor was Prof. Stefano Predelli.
Here are my Google Scholar, PhilPapers, and Academia.edu pages.
