full CV


  I graduated in philosophy at the University of Milan in 2003, and was awarded a PhD in philosophy of science at the University of Bristol in 2004. I have been working extensively on contemporary issues in the philosophy of science, especially Karl Popper and critical rationalism, Thomas Kuhn and the incommensurability thesis, the rationality of theory-change and conceptual change, truth and relativism. Since my doctorate, I have been working on the history of early-modern cosmology and astronomy, with special reference to Johannes Kepler and Galileo Galilei.
I taught at the universities of Milan, Vercelli, and Pisa, and was assistant professor at the IMT School for Advanced Studies, in Lucca. I held fellowships at Columbia University, Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania, and Duke University, and was visiting professor at Caltech. I am currently Dibner Research Fellow at The Huntington Library (San Marino, CA), and Research Associate at Caltech.
