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, my research and teaching interests include topics in social justice and human rights. I am also interested in distributive issues, 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, Politics, Philosophy & Economics, Political Theory, The Philosophical Quarterly, Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, Philosophical Studies, The European Journal of Philosophy, and Kantian Review. I am the author of From Global Poverty to Global Equality. A Philosophical Exploration, Human Dignity and Human Rights, and Human Dignity and Social Justice (all published with Oxford University Press). 

I am currently working on a project titled "Work, Well-Being, and Social Justice," funded by an Insight Grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
