I am a post-doctoral Fellow at The Cogut Center for the Humanities and the Department of Philosophy at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, USA.

My area of specialization is Medieval Philosophy. I finished my PhD in Philosophy at McGill University in Montreal, Québec, Canada, in April 2012, with a thesis on the notion of scientia in the Latin West in the twelfth century under the supervision of Calvin Normore (McGill/UCLA) and Carlos Fraenkel (McGill). My internal examiner was Stephen Menn (McGill/Humbolt-Berlin) and my external was Henrik Lagerlund (Western Ontario).

I was born and raised in Costa Rica, but emigrated to Canada in 2001 and became a Canadian citizen in 2006. Besides philosophy and the history of philosophy, I love travelling, taking photographs and learning foreign languages . My wife and I are avid travelers, and we’ve been concentrating on East Asia for the past 9 years or so, with travels to Japan, Korea, China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand and Cambodia.
