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

Most of my research is at the intersection of philosophy of language and natural language semantics, and explores fundamental questions about the nature of meaning. I draw on insights from related fields like syntax, phonology, metaphysics, philosophy of science, evolutionary biology, and cognitive science at large. I also have interests, and have published work, in the history of philosophy, South Asian philosophy, and classical studies.

I have a PhD in philosophy and cognitive science from San Raffaele University & NeTS, IUSS Pavia, and a PhD in philosophy and social science from the Institut Jean Nicod in Paris. Prior to that, I earned a BA in ancient philosophy and an MA in the history of philosophy. 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 a member of the NCCR Evolving Language.
