I specialise in the philosophies of language and logic, but I have also serious interests in logic proper, metaphysics, epistemology, and the ethics of climate change.
Together with Lorenzo Rossi, I am running a four year FWF project on semantic paradox, titled The Liar and its Revenge in Context. The project modestly seeks to solve the Liar Paradox, once and for all. A bit more precisely, we aim to systematically explores the limitations of non-classical solutions to the paradoxes, and to develop a novel contextualist approach – one that, unlike existing approaches, is immune from revenge objections and allows for absolutely unrestricted quantification. We’ll be organising three workshops and conferences, and we’ll be working on a bunch of papers and a book. We’ll also be hiring a junior post-doc in 2018. You can check the website of the project here.
I did my British PhD in Sheffield (2010), I held an Analysis Studentship at Arché (2009-2010), and I was a post-doctoral fellow at the MCMP (2010-2012). Before coming to Salzburg, I was a lecturer at the University of Kent (2012-2015). Before all that, I was an undergraduate in Rome, and a cellist.
I live near Salzburg with my partner Barbara and our two sons, Matteo and Flavio.
