Info

I am a Researcher in Philosophy of Language at the Leibniz-Zentrum Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft in Berlin, and a Fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung and of the William J. Fulbright Foundation. Currently, I am scientific director of the project «Contextual Blindness in Scalar Implicatures Computation», associated with the XPrag.de network, and I work as part of the project «The Strength of Scalar Inference: From Numbers to Strong Disjunction» sponsored by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft. Since 2016, I teach Logic and Theory of Meaning within the «Language and Mind» master program of Università di Siena.

My research primarily focuses on the Philosophy of Language, particularly on Semantics and Pragmatics. My current research interests are in Implicatures, Presuppositions, and in the relationship between Semantic Meaning and Assertion. I also have an interest – a theoretical interest – in the History of the Philosophy of Language, especially in the philosophy of Leibniz and Wittgenstein.

I was born in 1983 in northern Calabria, southern Italy, northern coast of the Mediterranean sea. Over the years, I have written about politics.
