This autumn, I will take up a full Professorship in Ethics of Artificial Intelligence at the University of Graz. Currently, 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.

​   Please do not hesitate to email me regarding drafts not presently online or anything else. In case you are interested in working with me at the University of Graz, or would like to submit a Marie Curie Grant proposal attached to my lab (further info here), please get in touch.
