I specialise in the philosophies of language and logic, but I have also serious interests in logic proper, metaphysics, epistemology, semantics, 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 systematically explores the limitations of non-classical solutions to the paradoxes, and develops a novel, fully classical 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 will 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 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).
I live near Salzburg with my partner Barbara and our two sons, Matteo and Flavio.
