I’m a CNRS researcher and a member of STL at the University of Lille.

Most of my research is at the crossroads of philosophy of language and natural language semantics, and concerns fundamental questions about the nature of linguistic meaning. I work on these topics in connection with relevant research in other branches of linguistics (esp. syntax and phonology), metaphysics, philosophy of science, and cognitive science at large. I also have interests, and have published work, in the history of philosophy, Eastern philosophy, and classical studies.

I did a PhD in philosophy and cognitive science at San Raffaele University & NeTS, IUSS Pavia, and a PhD in philosophy and social science at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales & Institut Jean Nicod. Before that, I got a BA in ancient philosophy and an MA in the history of philosophy, both from San Raffaele. Along the way, I’ve been a visiting student at MIT’s Department of Linguistics and Philosophy, a visiting fellow at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and a visiting fellow at the Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme.

Before joining the CNRS, I’ve been an Alexander von Humboldt fellow at the Institute of Philosophy of Freie Universität Berlin, and a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Philosophy of the University of Zürich, In Zürich, I was part of the NCCR Evolving Language, a nation-wide research consortium fostering cross-disciplinary work on language evolution and language change. I’m now an external collaborator of the NCCR.
