I am a Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Concordia University (Montreal, Canada). I am a native of Argentina. My areas of specialization are social and political philosophy and ethics. Within these areas, I am currently doing research on social justice, human rights, and the role of the concept of feasibility in moral and political reasoning. My research and teaching interests also include topics in global justice, distributive justice, democratic theory, contractualist theories in normative ethics, the Frankfurt School tradition of critical theory, Kant’s practical philosophy, and Marxism and socialism.
I have been an HLA Hart Visiting Fellow at the University of Oxford, a DAAD Fellow at the University of Frankfurt, a Visiting Fellow at the Australian National University, a Visiting Fellow at the University of Montreal, a Laurance S. Rockefeller Visiting Faculty Fellow in the Center for Human Values at Princeton University, and a Visiting Scholar at the University of California, Berkeley.
My research has also been supported by grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and the Fonds Québécois de la Recherche sur la Société et la Culture.
My papers appeared in journals such as The Journal of Political Philosophy, Political Theory, The Philosophical Quarterly, Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, Philosophical Studies, The European Journal of Philosophy, Kantian Review, and Human Rights Quarterly. I am the author of From Global Poverty to Global Equality. A Philosophical Exploration and Human Dignity and Human Rights (both published with Oxford University Press). I am currently working on a book on the moral foundations of democratic socialism, entitled Human Dignity and Social Justice (under contract with Oxford University Press).
