I am a scientific collaborator at the University of Geneva. I have been awarded a Swiss National Science Foundation Ambizione Fellowship to start my project in 2019, which is entitled Composing the World out of Nowhere: The Mereological Structures of Quantum Gravity. I’m also an associate member at the University of Rennes (France). After a Ph.D. in metaphysics of time at the University of Rennes 1, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the project Space and Time after Quantum Gravity (conducted at the University of Illinois at Chicago and at the University of Geneva) and then a research associate in the project To and Fro: Scientific Metaphysics at Physics’s Frontiers in Geneva. I am also a member of the Geneva Symmetry Group. Most of my research interests are in theoretical philosophy (metaphysics, philosophy of science, philosophy of physics), mainly on time and space, modality, mereology and material objects but I also occasionally branch out in philosophy of mind and comparative philosophy. I am currently working on a collection on the philosophy of quantum gravity with Christian Wüthrich and Nick Huggett, to be published with Oxford University Press.
