My background is a mix between philosophy and anthropology, applied to topics on Gender Studies and then in Science, Technology and Society Studies. Recently I have stepped into Philosophy of Cognitive Science and Phenomenology, with a particular emphasis on female bodies and menstruation. I collaborate with Hanne De Jaegher, Arantza Etxeberría, Laura Nuño, Mihaela Pavlicev, and others, to open a new research line within IAS Research for investigating the forgotten aspects of the female body in Philosophy of Science.
