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 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, and University of Leeds. I will be a Visiting Professor at the University of Trento, and an Associated Faculty Member at the University of Oxford for the academic year 2021-2022.
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.
When I am not doing philosophy I am reading, or watching Roger Federer and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
I dress in black.
