After finishing an MA degree in Philosophy at UCC (Cork, National University of Ireland), I completed a PhD in Philosophy at the University of the Basque Country. My dissertation was about Thoreau’s views on civil disobedience in the light of contemporary political philosophy.
After a post-doctoral stage in the University of Iceland, I began teaching courses on Bioethics and Political Philosophy, both at the undergraduate and postgraduate level, while developing some research. In order to improve my training, I have stayed as visiting scholar in research centers such as Egenis (University of Exeter) and the Center for Philosophy and History of Science (Boston University). At the present moment I am Secretary of the Hospital Donostia Ethics Committee, and member of the Basque Society for Palliative Care.
