I’m a philosopher. 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 hold a PhD from the University of Rennes and a habilitation from the University of Bern. I’m the PI of a Swiss NSF Ambizione project  at the University of Geneva on the metaphysics of quantum gravity.

After a PhD in metaphysics of time at the University of Rennes, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Space and Time after Quantum Gravity project (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. My books and a selection of articles are accessible below; all my articles are listed and accessible via a dedicated page in the menu.
