I am researcher in linguistics and philosophy at Universitat Pompeu Fabra and an adjunct professor of philosophy at Università degli Studi di Siena. I hold or have held fellowships with several international institutions, including the Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung and the J. William Fulbright Foundation. I am a former researcher at the Leibniz-Zentrum Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft (ZAS) and a current member of the Marie Curie Alumni Association.

My research interests include the semantics and pragmatics of natural languages. I take intuitions about logical structure and meaning to reveal important attributes of the human nature. I am, however, innately inclined to allow for the practical dimension of life. I also have an interest for the history of linguistics and analytic philosophy.

I was born in 1983 in northern Calabria, southern Italy, northern coast of the Mediterranean sea.
