Curriculum Vitae

I obtained my PhD from the University of Modena in 2013. My supervisor was Annalisa Coliva. During my PhD I was a research visitor at the Institut Jean Nicod, the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee and the University of Barcelona. Since 2009, I am a member of COGITO Research Centre in Analytic Philosophy (Bologna).

Before joining LOGOS, I held postdoctoral positions at the University of Modena (2013-2014) and at McGill University (2014-2015).

I work mainly in epistemology and the philosophies of language and mind. I'm interested in disagreement, relativism, objectivity, singular thoughts, first-person judgements, propositions, expert deference, inquiry, and doxastic attitudes.

Drafts of my papers are available on my academia.edu webpage.
