I’m a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Philosophy of Universität Zürich.

My primary areas of research are the philosophy of language and natural language semantics. Most of my current work is on nature of meaning and semantic properties, topics I think about in connection with issues in metaphysics, philosophy of mind, and cognitive science. 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 with Andrea Moro at Università San Raffaele & NeTS, IUSS Pavia, and a PhD in philosophy and social science with Fran├žois Recanati at the Institut Jean Nicod & EHESS. Before that, I got a BA in ancient philosophy and an MA in the history of philosophy, both from Università 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 GSAS, and a visiting fellow at the Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme.

Before joining UZH, I was an Alexander von Humboldt fellow at the Institut für Philosophie of Freie Universität Berlin. In Zürich, I’m part of the NCCR Evolving Language, a nation-wide research consortium fostering cross-disciplinary work on language evolution and language change.
