Personal CV

His main field of interest is in different kinds of arguments and reasoning, and their associated fallacies. He is currently involved in two projects sponsored by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT): “Is moral reasoning essentially dialogical?” (FCT-funded individual post-doctoral project SFRH/BPD/77687/2011) and “Argumentation, Communication and Context” (FCT-funded institutional project in ArgLab PTDC/FIL-FIL/110117/2009).
