I am researcher in philosophy and linguistics at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, where I lead this project on the logic of natural languages (MSCA grant agreement No 801370). I am also an adjunct professor of philosophy at Università 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), where I led this project on the semantics/pragmatics interface (AvH grant 1186E6E HFST-P), 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.
