I am currently a PhD student in the 3-year PhD programme in ʻPhilosophy, Science, and Valuesʼ at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). I am a member of the IAS-Research Centrefor Life, Mind, and Society.

My PhD project is on intersubjectivity and embodiment in Gestalt psychotherapy. Broadly speaking, the aim of the projecti is to generate a dialogue between Enactivism and the practice of Gestalt psychotherapy.
