I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Tilburg Center for Logic, Ethics, and Philosophy of Science (TiLPS), Tilburg University. Before coming to Tilburg, I obtained my Ph.D. in the Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology program, Department of Philosophy at Washington University in St. Louis (Summer 2016). I studied Philosophy (B.A.) and Computer Science (B.Sc, MS.c.) at University of Los Andes.
My research falls in the domains of philosophy of science, social epistemology, and philosophy of cognitive science. I work primarily on understanding how the social organization of research activities affects their epistemic outcomes. My current focus is the replicability crisis in the sciences. I also have projects on causation and explanation in cognitive science, and knowledge ascriptions. I explore these topics with a pluralistic methodological approach, supporting conceptual analysis with empirical literature, case studies, and computational models.
My research is funded by the project "Making Scientific Inferences More Objective", directed by Jan Sprenger (European Research Council Grant No. 640638.)
