Further Information

I am currently a doctoral fellow at the MCMP, working under the supervision of Prof. DDr. Hannes Leitgeb. I obtained a B.A. in Philosophy and an M.A. in Logic, Philosophy and History of Science from the University of Florence.

Research Interests

My PhD project focuses on rational procedures for conceptual change/analysis (e.g. Explication, Informal Rigor, Proofs and Refutations), with a specific attention to their applications to mathematical concepts. Broadly speaking, I am interested in theoretical philosophy (Explication, Conceptual Spaces), philosophy of mathematics (Kreisel), history and philosophy of computation (CTT, Post, Turing), history of philosophy (Carnap, Lakatos).
