Areas of research

Personal Identity

This is my main area of research, and I have carried out a few research projects related to it. The first one was devoted to the completion of my Ph.D. thesis, which was entitled Human Beings, Selves, and Persons: A Narrative Proposal for the Problem of Personal Identity. The project was funded for the period 2009-2013 by a Ph.D. Complutense Fellowship from the Complutense University of Madrid. After that, I also worked on a research proyect on the use of thought experiments in personal identity while I was a visiting scholar at Georgia State University (2016-2017). I also worked on a research project related to this topic while a was a Complutense Postdoctoral Fellow at the Complutense University of Madrid (2017-2019). It was focused on how narrative identity theories relate to reductionist theories of personal identity.


Cinema and Philosophy

I carried out a research project on the representation of memory in postmodern cinema through the lens of recent cognitive science and Nietsche's philosophy. The project was devoted to the completion of the dissertation of my M.A. in Advanced Studies in Philosophy and it was funded by an Initiation to Research Fellowship from the Complutense University of Madrid (2007-2008). I also founded a scientific journal on this area, Sesión no numerada: Revistas de letras y ficción audiovisual, which issued four volumes between 2011 and 2014.


Peter Pan

I work on this subject every now and then since I was studying my B.A. in Literary Theory and Comparative Literature. I carried out a more formal research project on the literary and film adaptations of Peter Pan as the topic of the dissertation of my M.A. in Literary Studies (2008-2009). Some of the work done within this project deserved the 1st International Award for Research in Children's and Young Adults Literature in 2011. In March 2011, I also organized along with Elisa T. Di Biase the 'A Hundred Years of Peter and Wendy' International Conference, held at the Complutense University of Madrid.
