Research summary

My current work mainly centres around ancient and contemporary metaphysics and semantics. I am into all things concerning modality and causation. My philosophical interests extend to several areas of philosophy, including philosophy of mind and social and political philosophy.

Teaching summary

I teach at all levels. Besides ancient philosophy, I regularly teach metaphysics, as well as courses at the intersection of metaphysics and semantics. I have also taught: logic, philosophy of logic, philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, Kant, history of ethics, freedoms, and epistemology. In summer, I teach political and social philosophy at Trento's state prison.


I completed my doctorate at Oxford in 2017. I have been a visiting assistant professor at Columbia (Barnard) and a visiting fellow at Harvard, Princeton, and NYU.
