I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania. I specialize in social and political philosophy and in German philosophy, but I also have research interests in ethics and critical theory. My work focuses on Kant's cosmopolitanism, on the legitimacy of global governance institutions, on poverty and its normative significance, and on methodology in political philosophy.
I am originally from Caracas, Venezuela. I earned my B.A. with Highest Distinction in Philosophy and Political Science from Purdue University. In 2016-2017, I was a Fulbright Graduate Fellow at the Excellence Cluster on The Formation of Normative Orders at Goethe University Frankfurt. I completed my Ph.D. in Philosophy at Northwestern University in 2017.
