Postdoc in Philosophy of Physics
Department of Philosophy - University of Milan

I work mainly in analytic metaphysics and philosophy of physics, and I am particularly interested in the interactions between these two fields. In the last few years I have been focusing on the topic of metaphysical indeterminacy, especially as applied to quantum physics, and have published a few works on this. My other research interests are in the philosophy of time, the metaphysics of science broadly construed (laws, emergence, fundamentality), and the interpretation of quantum mechanics (GRW in particular). Before joining Proteus, I was a Juan de la Cierva Postdoc in Barcelona (UB), and from 2020 to 2021 I did research at the Institut Néel (CNRS) in Grenoble. I obtained my PhD in January 2020 from the University of Milan, and along the way I spent visiting research periods at Rutgers University, the University of Geneva, the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, and the University of Sydney.
