Joseph Martinez

PhD Candidate, University of California San Diego


Welcome! I am currently a PhD Candidate at the University of California San Diego. Prior to coming to UCSD, I recieved my BA in Philosophy from UC Berkeley. My thesis chairs are Manuel Vargas and Dana Nelkin.

I work primarily in Metaphysics and Ethics, with a focus on Free Will and Moral Responsibility. My current research project involves developing and defending a novel version of agent causation.

I also have interests in Latin American and Latinx Philosophy, Ancient Philosophy, and Philosophy of Science.
