Dr Matteo Mameli

Reader in Philosophy


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.
