I am a PhD student interested in researching cognition as a natural and situated phenomenon, focusing on the technological environment in which we as organisms are inmersed. From the beginning of my academic formation I have been interested in how we relate to our surroundings and to other organisms and how we evolved to do so, and an interdisciplinary formation (on psychology, neuroscience and philosophy) has allowed me to dwell on these and other topics. This has lead me to undertake my PhD under the supervision of Xabier Barandiaran, with the aim to research on the new cognitive ecologies that digital technologies constitute and how they shape us as autonomous agents. Other of my interests, which I hope I will be able to explore in the future, include architecture and urbanism, and film and media.
