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 philosophical methods of rational conceptual change/analysis (e.g. explication, informal rigour, concept-stretching), with a specific attention to their application to mathematical concepts. Broadly speaking, I am interested in theories of concepts (Conceptual Spaces), philosophy of mathematics (Lakatos, Kreisel), philosophy of science (theory change, structuralism), history of philosophy (Carnap, Waismann), and philosophy of computation (Post, Turing, CTT).
