BA Social Work, San Luis National University (UNSL) Argentina; MA Philosophy, Science and Values  (University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU - UNAM).

I teach Philosophy and Epistemology of Social Sciences in the Faculty of Economic, Legal and Social Sciences of the San Luis National University (UNSL), Argentina.

I am currently undergoing my PhD Studies in Philosophy, Science and Values PhD Program (University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU). My PhD research refers to epistemic questions in the production of knowledge of Latin American Philosophy that consider socio-political and historical events as a starting point including the situated subjectivity.  This research is based on the epistemic criteria that derives from the contingency and historicity in the different ways in which the descolonial and intercultural thoughts are represented and constituted.

I am particularly interested in understanding how non-epistemic values become epistemic, and how the context in which knowledge takes place becomes valuable. In particular, in the construction of the descolonial epistemic practice in South America; interaction between geopolitics of knowledge, cultural hegemony, border thinking, intercultural dialogue and the coloniality of power.
