Welcome! I am a postdoctoral associate at the University of Toronto (Mississauga Campus). Toronto is my alma mater, where I earned a BA and MA, before completing a Ph.D at Yale University in 2019. Starting in the fall of 2020, I will be an assistant professor at Georgia State University.

Much of my research is on the topic of practical intelligence, the specific form of intelligence that rational creatures exercise qua agents. The questions that arise in connection to this topic lie at the intersection of philosophy of mind and action, epistemology, and moral psychology. In addition, I have interests and working projects in ethics, philosophy of emotion, metaphysics, and ancient philosophy. You can learn more about my research and teaching on this website, where you will also find a copy of my cv.

My email is juan.pineros@utoronto.ca.

(Please note that my previous email, juan.pineros@yale.edu, is phasing out soon).


A bit more about me and my name: I was born Juan Sebastián Piñeros Sánchez, in Bogotá, Colombia. In the South American tradition, I was given both my parents's last names (cf. 'Gabriel García Márquez').


I immigrated with my family to Toronto, Canada in 2002, when I was 14 years old. I met my wife at the University of Toronto while she was pursuing her MA there in 2013. When we got married in 2016, we decided to combine our last names (without a hyphen!). Hence, 'Piñeros Glasscock'.

Here's the way I would prefer my work to be cited in a bibliographical entry:

Piñeros Glasscock, Juan S. ---etc.----
