I was born in 1978 in Udine (Italy). I defended my PhD thesis in Philosophy in December 2008 in Paris ("The future contingents problem and the Fitch's paradox. A common approach to two problems in modal logic") under the supervision of Prof. G. Sandu (Université de Paris 1- University of Helsinki) and Prof. M. Mariani (University of Pisa). I have a Master degree in Philosophy (University of Pisa - Scuola Normale Superiore) and a Master 2 in Mathematical Logic and foundations of Informatics (Paris VII - Jussieu).

I came to Lund University in September 2009 for a project on ``Ceteris paribus modal logics for Epistemology and Philosophy of Science'' financed by the Swedish Research Council (2009-2011).


About the research

My main research areas are Philosophical Logic and Epistemology, with focus on modal logics and its applications. I am currently working on a project to develop "Logical modelling of collective attitudes and their dynamics" financed by the Swedish Research Council (2013-2015). My focus in this research is the application of Dynamic Epistemic Logics and Systems of artificial agents to the analysis of higher-order beliefs in specific phenomena of group behaviour such as pluralistic ignorance, informational cascades, echo chambers and other dynamics of interest for Social Psychology and Behavioural Economics.

My research interests and publications are in

- Epistemic Logic and its applications
- Logic and Philosophy of Time
- Verificationism and the Fitch Paradox of Knowability
- Non classical modal logics
- Agent Based Modeling and computer simulations of Artificial Societies
