Laura Menatti

I am specialised in environmental philosophy, landscape theory and philosophy of medicine. My research aims at developing a theoretical and practical framework for the investigation of the notion of environment and its effects on health. During my research career, I have pursued an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary trajectory. My research activities are at the crossroads of philosophy, environmental and cognitive science, they are based on a quantitative and qualitative research methodology and on-field activities. I have been teaching and doing research in different faculties and departments (medicine, architecture, philosophy, science) in Spain, Chile, Italy and France.
Recently I have been a visiting fellow (Spring Term 2022) at the Center for Philosophy of Science of the University of Pittsburgh. During 2021, I have worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the  IAS-Research Centre for Life, Mind & Society of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), in San Sebastian (Spain). 

​I have been collaborating as lecturer with the Bordeaux School of Architecture and Landscape (ENSAPBx Bordeaux - France), the University of the Basque Country (UPV-EHU) and the Public University of Navarra (UPNA), the University of Chile (Santiago) and the University of Desarrollo (UDD, Chile). I am also book reviews editor of the journal Landscape Research. 

I have two PhDs in philosophy, one in aesthetics from the University of Pavia (Italy) and a second one in philosophy of globalisation from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). In 2015, my second PhD thesis received The Landscape Research Group Dissertation Prize for the best PhD essay on landscape (section art and design) by the Landscape Research Group (research group associated with the journal Landscape Research, Q1 Scopus).
