I did my undergraduate work at the University of Bologna. I moved to the UK to do an MPhil and a PhD at King’s College London. After the PhD, I was a Research Fellow at the London School of Economics and Political Science, and then at the University of Cambridge (King’s College). I came back to KCL in 2007, where I am now Reader in Philosophy. I am a member of Council of the Royal Institute of Philosophy and I am in the Editorial Board of the journal Topoi.

Research interests and PhD supervision

A selection of topics in these areas:

  • Philosophy of biology, psychology, and anthropology
  • Science and society, philosophy of technology, bioethics
  • Social and political philosophy

I welcome enquiries from prospective PhD students.


I teach modules on the philosophy of technology and the philosophy of psychology.

Expertise and public engagement

I am happy to talk to media about:

  • Research in biology, psychology, anthropology, and social science (philosophical, ethical and political implications)
  • Technological, scientific, and sociocultural change (philosophical, ethical and political implications)
