I am a philosophy of language researcher at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona and a philosophy professor 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 postdoctoral researcher at the Leibniz-Zentrum Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft (ZAS), Berlin.
My research interests include the semantics and pragmatics of natural languages. I take intuitions about meaning and logical structure to reveal important attributes of the human nature. I am, however, innately inclined to allow for the social dimension of life. I also have an interest for the history of analytic philosophy.
I was born in 1983 in northern Calabria, southern Italy, northern coast of the Mediterranean sea. I often pay court to the idea of return.
