I’m a Ph.D. candidate in the philosophy department at Princeton University. Before coming to Princeton, I received my M.A. in Philosophy from Universidad de los Andes in 2017.
 
My main research interest is in practical rationality, i.e., rationality as it pertains to action. This broad interest spans three more specific sub-areas:
 
  1. The phenomenon of temptation and its presumed irrationality.
  2. Rational choice explanations of social norms.
  3. Philosophical theories of practical rationality and their political consequences.

In connection to this third topic, I recently became seriously interested in Latin American philosophy, particularly in the use of Aristotelian ideas in 16th-century debates about the appropriate treatment of the indigenous populations of the Americas.
