Brief Description of Work:
I have published on epistemology, ethics and feminist theory. I am currently doing research on an innovative field, the Philosophy of Birth. My project, ‘Values in Obstetric Controversies: an Epistemological Inquiry’, explores how our concepts of pregnancy and childbirth reflect our view of the world and of human being. I have taught philosophy at the Universities of Saint Louis, Lund, Paderborn, Marie Curie, Humboldt and Kent, and have conducted research at the Universities of California, Notre Dame and Oxford. I am Speaker of The International Association of Women Philosophers (IAPh) and Board member of the Spanish Network of Philosophy.
