Editor of Normativity & Truthmaker Semantics @ PhilPapers

My cv — my academia.edu

News: I am co-editing a Springer Outstanding Contributions to Logic on Kit Fine with Frederik van de Putte. Stay tuned! I will be visiting Tsinghua University in Beijing at some point in the future, working with Fenrong Liu. 

My research interests are in logic (esp. deontic and modal, justification logic, truthmaker semantics), metaphysics (hyperintensionality, supervenience), metaethics (reasons), philosophy of language (evaluative adjectives, generics) and philosophy of law (responsibility). My current research is on a hyperintensional theory of normative phenomena, on identity and indiscernibility in higher-order languages, on generics, and on the scale of moral adjectives.

Starting in 2017/18, I was awarded a Flanders Research Foundation (FWO) 3-year grant. I am based at the Centre of Logic and Philosophy of Science of Ghent University (Belgium). I spent most of 2018/19 at the NYU Department of Philosophy, working with Kit Fine.
I was also awarded a Lise Meitner 2-year grant, which I am spending at the University of Salzburg starting in 2019/20. I am part of the Nature and Normativity program of the JQY Academy of the Goethe University, Frankfurt, as the International Academy Program Fellow, in 2018/19.
As of 2016/17, I was an adjunct professor (temporary lecturer) at the Department of Philosophy, University of Milan, where I taught topics in contemporary metaethics and metaphysics.

I received my abilitazione as associate professor of logic and philosophy of science in July 2019, and as associate professor of philosophy of law in January 2020.
I got my PhD in logic and philosophy in 2017. I studied at the University of Florence and at the University of Pisa,  supervised by Pierluigi Minari (Florence); at NYU, supervised by Kit Fine in 2015/16; in Paris (IJN, ENS and EPHE), supervised by Paul Egré (in 2016); and at the Arché Research Centre at the University of St Andrews, supervised by Justin Snedegar (in 2014).

My examiners were Sergei Artemov (CUNY), Ralf Bader (Oxford) and Sergio Bernini (Florence).

I got my MA and BA from the University of Pavia (Italy), as a fellow of Almo Collegio Borromeo, with a dissertation supervised by Amedeo Giovanni Conte (Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei, Rome) and Sergio Filippo Magni (Pavia).
I've been a visiting graduate student in Oxford (TT 2015), at Arché, St. Andrews (UK), in Fall 2014, and at Trinity College, Dublin, from Sept 2012 to Feb 2013. I also was a visiting research student at NAU (USA), in 2010.
