About

I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Geneva, Department of Philosophy, and a Visiting Professor at USI, Lugano—MAP. I also lead the SNF-funded project, Metaphysics of Quantum Objects (2020-2024). I will also be Visiting Professor at the University of Trento and UNAM, Mexico City in 2022.

I have been a Visiting Professor at the University of Oxford and Leeds. Before that, I have been a Post-Doctoral Fellow and Lecturer at University of Geneva, Neuchâtel, University of Urbino, and Visiting Research Fellow at University of Pittsburgh, University of California at Irvine, New York University.

I work mainly in Analytic Metaphysics, Metaphysics of Science, and Philosophy of Physics. The core of my research—I’d say—concerns the application of formal methods (e.g. mereology, topology, dependence, location) to broad philosophical issues such as identity, composition, dependence, and fundamentality. Lately I have been doing some work in Philosophy & Literature as well.

I am a proud member of eidos, and of the Geneva Symmetry Group. My page at Geneva is here.

When I am not doing philosophy I am reading (mostly poetry and theatre), or watching Roger Federer (even after his retirement), and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

I dress in black.
