As a ‘sense-maker’, I value the ability to speak to audiences with different skills, interests, and backgrounds. Our history, social environment, and embodied lived experience shape how we connect with each other, and this fact inspires me to make philosophy and science accessible to all.

With my colleague Tomáš Dominik, I recently published an article in Scientific American on the neuro-philosophy of volition.

prideflag2019As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I am especially committed to supporting, through my philosophical work and my activism, women, queer, trans, and non-binary people.

Over the years, I have given public lectures on various topics in my hometown of Varese, Italy.

In 2019, I obtained a Certificate in Engaged and Public Humanities at Georgetown University, with which I also received a Humanities Ambassador Fellowship for the project The Good Citizen – Human Nature and Public Life.

I am a founding member of Philosophers for Sustainability and I have translated in Italian their Guidelines for Sustainable Practices in Philosophy.

Political activism is also a big part of my life and a lasting passion. As Provincial Vice-secretary of the Giovani Democratici (i.e. the Youth organization tied to the Italian Democratic Party), I have contributed to the creation of a promotional video in 2014 and I was responsible for the conception and organization of several events.
