Before joining LOGOS, I received a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy (2017) at Ca' Foscari University of Venice with a thesis about Medieval logic. I continued my MA studies at the Venetian University - becoming a student at its Honours College – where I discussed a thesis about the relation between Jan Łukasiewicz’s three-valued logic and Arthur Prior’s temporal logic (2019). After that, I concluded the Logic Year (2020) at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam, where I had the opportunity to improve my technical skills and find new interesting ways to apply them to philosophy.

During my Bachelor's, I have been a visiting student at the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. I came back to France during my Master's, spending a semester at the Grenoble Alpes University. Immediately after, I also enjoyed the Harvard Summer School in Mathematics.

Broadly speaking my interests lie in philosophical logic, especially in the philosophical applications of modal logic.

My Ph.D. project is funded by an FPI fellowship within the project “Justification, its Structure and Grounds” (PGC2018-099889-B-I00) and it is supervised by Sven Rosenkranz and Aybüke Özgün (ILLC). I work in formal epistemology, focusing on the concept of justified belief, trying to provide it with adequate modal semantics able to deal with the problem of logical omniscience. Moreover, I am interested in understanding what is the relation between justified belief and the passage of time.
