In 2005, I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from the Faculty for Social and Human Sciences at the New University of Lisbon. The next year I enrolled in the Master’s course of Aesthetics in the same faculty. After completing the first year of the Masters degree, I was awarded a doctoral grant from the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology. In 2010, I became full member of IFILNOVA. In 2013, I delivered and successfully defended my doctoral thesis, on Schopenhauer’s conception of the subjectivity and selfhood. In 2014, I was awarded yet another grant for the development of post-doctoral research at IFILNOVA. Finally, in 2019 I became a Research Fellow at NOVA FCSH. My present research project centers in Schopenhauer’s transformation of Kant’s conception of the Self and its impact on, and relation with, Nietzsche’s thought and existentialism in general. I am the author of several papers and on Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, and Merleau-Ponty and the editor of a book on the phenomenology of intersubjectivity.
