About




I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Philosophy, University of Geneva, working with Prof. Katerina Ierodiakonou.

Before that, I have been a junior fellow at the Maimonides Centre for Advanced Studies at the University of Hamburg, a Fulbright scholar at the Sage School of Philosophy, Cornell University,  and a visiting doctoral student at the Faculty of Classics, University of Cambridge.

I have defended my dissertation on "Sceptical argumentation and philosophical theology: Topics in Hellenistic philosophy" in November 2016, at the Department of Philosophy, Central European University (CEU). My doctoral research was supervised by Prof. Gábor Betegh, and my examiners were Prof. Tad Brennan (Cornell) and Prof. David Sedley (Cambridge). I have passed my viva voce without corrections.

I am currently working on the notion of Pyrrhonean inquiry; Sextus Empiricus' arguments against dogmatic theology; Ciceronian scepticism in the De Natura Deorum; and Hume's understanding of ancient scepticism.
