Info

I am a Senior researcher in philosophy of language and linguistics at Università di Siena and a former Senior researcher at the Leibniz-Zentrum Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft (ZAS) and at Universitat Pompeu Fabra. I led this project on the logic of natural languages (MSCA grant agreement No 801370) and this project on the semantics/pragmatics interface (AvH grant 1186E6E HFST-P). I hold or have held fellowships with several international institutions, including the Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung, the J. William Fulbright Foundation and 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.
