Office Hours: W 10-12

Rafael finished his PhD at McGill University in 2012. His main research is on notions of scientia (scientific knowledge) in the medieval period, but, for better or worse, he is interested in pretty much everything in philosophy, the history of philosophy, science and math. He is a Canadian citizen born and raised in Costa Rica, and is an avid traveler and language learner. For a number of years before turning to philosophy, he was an engineer working on IP networks, which explains in part why he has been a UNIX/Linux user since 1993.
