I am a philosopher of cognitive science, working at University of Oxford as a postdoctoral fellow. I hold a BA in philosophy (Bologna University), an MA in philosophy of science (Lophiss, Paris 1, Paris 4, Paris 7, ENS) and an MA in cognitive science (Cogmaster, ENS, EHESS, Paris 5). I did my PhD at the Jean Nicod Institute, working under the supervision of Pierre Jacob, on the social contents of perception. I was an international fellow at the Ecole Normale in Paris and a honours student at Collegio Superiore in Bologna.
I work in social cognition with a special focus on social perception and its relation to mindreading. I am also interested in the architecture of the mind, metacognition, explanation and natural kinds in psychology.
