About me...

I am currently Postdoctoral Research Fellow of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) in the Philosophy Department of the University of Zurich. Previously, I was SNSF Postdoc.Mobility Fellow at the Arché Philosophical Research Center (University of St Andrews), Beatriu de Pinós Fellow of the Catalan Agency for the Management of University and Research Grants in the LOGOS Research Group in Analytic Philosophy (University of Barcelona), and  SNSF Early Postdoc.Mobility Fellow at the Institute for Logic, Language, and Computation (University of Amsterdam). Before that, I held several research and teaching positions at the University of Geneva (Department of Philosophy), the Sorbonne-Nouvelle University (ILPGA), and Paris Diderot University (CNRS Research Team 7597).

 

I completed my PhD in 2015 at the University of Paris with a dissertation in historical epistemology (cum laude), and also got degrees in philosophy (BA 2006, MA 2008), linguistics (MA 2009), and logic (BA 2010, MA 2011) from Paris Sorbonne Universities.

 

In 2018, I was Visiting Researcher at ConceptLab (University of Oslo) and Visiting Scholar at New York University (Department of Philosophy). Next year, I will be Visiting Scholar at the Center for Philosophy of Science (University of Pittsburgh).
