I am a research associate at the University of Zurich working on philosophy of language, mind and moral psychology. I'm currently the PI of a 4-year SNF research project exploring biases in mental state ascriptions. I'm also a fellow at the Digital Society Initiative (UZH) where I work on Ethics & AI.

   Previously I did a postdoc at the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh, and was a Humanities and Neuroscience Fellow at Columbia University's Italian Academy. I hold a PhD in philosophy and an MA in cognitive science from the Institut Jean Nicod (ENS/EHESS Paris), as well as a BA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from the University of Oxford. I also studied film in the MFA program at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and have directed a few films.
