Brief Description of Work: I completed my PhD in Philosophy from the University of Freiburg in Germany and from the University of Paris-Sorbonne. In addition to my research around the criticisms of scientific positivism, which gave me expertise in the fields of Epistemology and Phenomenology, I currently work on a project in Philosophy of Psychiatry, which aims to show how a rigorous description of clinician’s pre-reflexive experience during the first interaction with patients could contribute to develop an integrative and multifaceted model of Evidence-based-Medicine (EBM).

Key Words: Resident in: Germany; Working in: France, Chile and Germany; Area(s) of Interest in VBP: Evidence-Based-Practice; Ethics, Medical humanities (philosophy). Area(s) of Research: Applied Epistemology, Phenomenology, Consciousness Studies, Analytical and continental theories of knowledge Area(s) of healthcare expertise: philosophy of psychiatry and psychology.
