Bio note

In 2012, I completed a PhD on “Heidegger and the Phenomenology of Human Solitude” at the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences of the New University of Lisbon. From 2012 to 2017, I was an Integrated Member of the Institute for Philosophical Studies R&D Research Unit at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Coimbra. As a member of the Institute, I participated in its strategic project, funded by the Portuguese Agency for Science and Technology (PEst-C/FIL/UI0010/2013). While at the Institute, I carried out postdoctoral research on “Freedom and Responsibility in Stoic Thought”, for which I received funding by the Institute and the Hardt Foundation for the Study of Classical Antiquity in Geneva. The funding from the Institute allowed me to conduct a research stay in Utrecht, to work with reputed scholars on Stoicism (Keimpe Algra, Teun Tieleman and Jaap Mansfeld) at the local university. The main outcome of the postdoctoral research was a book On the Use of Impressions: The Lessons of the Stoics, which is forthcoming at the Foundation Engenheiro António de Almeida Editions. At the Institute, I also directed a translation seminar of German philosophical texts, which culminated in the publication of the first Portuguese translation of Max Scheler’s important book Regret and Rebirth at the renowned Portuguese publishing house Edições 70. From 2017 to 2018, I was an Integrated Member of the Centre of Philosophy of the University of Lisbon R&D Research Unit, where I worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the project “Experimentation and Dissidence”, funded by the Portuguese Agency for Science and Technology (PTDC/MHC-FIL/1416/2014). As a member of the project’s team, I carried out research on Nietzsche’s and Foucault’s reception of Antiquity, and have proactively collaborated in the organization of several international conferences and the edition of several conference proceedings on the subject of experimentation and dissidence in philosophy and the arts. I recently became an Integrated Member of Ifilnova R&D Research Unit. As a member of Ifilnova, I participate in its strategic project, funded by the Portuguese Agency for Science and Technology (UID/FIL/00183/2019), and carry out research on ancient and contemporary philosophy in the Culturelab. Also at Ifilnova, as a member of the Nietzsche Lisbon Group, I am part of the team working in the project “Nihilism and Art in Nietzsche: Fragments”, funded by the Portuguese Agency for Science and Technology (PTDC/FER FIL/30172/2017). In the context of the Nietzsche Lisbon Group and the Art of Living Research Group, I am developing a project on “Greek Pessimism as a Form of Nihilism in the Young Nietzsche”.
