Welcome to my website


 I studied Law and Philosophy at the Catholic University in Caracas, Venezuela and the Central University of Venezuela. I obtained a MJur from Oxford University (Balliol College) and a PhD in Legal Philosophy from Cambridge University (Corpus Christi College). I joined the School of Law at the University of Birmingham in 2001 and was promoted to a Senior Lectureship in 2006. In 2016, I was appointed Professor in Moral and Political Philosophy (Jurisprudence) at the University of Surrey and am a member of the Surrey Centre for Law and Philosophy (https://surreycentrelp.org/).
My research has been funded by Foundation for the Promotion of Research-Rio de Janeiro (FAPERJ),  the Alexander Von Humboldt Foundation, British Academy, the Cambridge Overseas Trust and the British Council.
