I’m a philosopher. Most of my research interests are in theoretical philosophy (philosophy of physics, philosophy of science, metaphysics), 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 in philosophy from the University of Rennes, a habilitation in philosophy of science from the University of Bern and the French professor qualification in sections 17 and 72. I’m supervising 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.
