About me...

I currently hold a Postdoc.Mobility Fellowship of the Swiss National Science Foundation at ARCHÉ Philosophical Research Center (University of St Andrews). Previously, I was Beatriu de Pinós Fellow of the Catalan Agency for the Management of University and Research Grants at LOGOS Research Group in Analytic Philosophy (University of Barcelona) and  Early Postdoc. Mobility Fellow of the Swiss National Science Foundation 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 received my PhD with highest honors in 2015 from Paris Diderot University for a thesis in historical epistemology, 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). In January 2021, I will be Visiting Scholar at the Center for Philosophy of Science (University of Pittsburgh).
