News: I am co-organizing Trends in Logic 18 (Milan, Sept. 2018), a workshop on the Logics of Non-Causal Explanations (Ghent, May 2019), and Formal Ethics (Ghent, 2019). Stay tuned! I will be mostly hanging out in New York City during the 2018/2019 academic year. 

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 will spend most of 2018/19 at the NYU Department of Philosophy. 
I was also awarded a Lise Meitner 2-year grant, which I will spend at the University of Salzburg starting in 2019/20. I will participate in 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 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).

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

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.
