About me

I am Full Professor of Philosophy of Science. I have been at University of Milan since 2001 when I was appointed as Assistant Professor there. Before that I studied at the Husserl-Archives of Leuven (1992-1993), at the Ecole Normale Superiéure of Paris (1994), and at the University of Genova (1995-1999), where I obtained my PhD in Philosophy of Science. Fields of research: Cognitive neuroscience and philosophy of mind. I'm currently working on the role of motor processes and representations in joint action. Here you can find my CV.

Research Projects

TRANSITION GRANT 2015-2017 The main aim is to explore whether and how  motor processes and representations may facilitate coordination around collective goals as well as to investigate how such 'facilitation' can modulate (or being modulated by) higher-order processes and representations, especially when coordination requires to make use of abstract reasoning, conventions, or social norms.

MOTOR PLANNING AND PRACTICAL REASONING - BRITISH ACADEMY LEVERHULME SMALL RESEARCH GRANTS Much recent research indicates that motor planning must mesh with practical reasoning, both in understanding and in performing actions. But what states and processes could explain how motor planning meshes with practical reasoning, and with thinking more generally? Disciplinary boundaries have obscured the difficulty of this question. Motor planning is a topic for cognitive science, whereas practical reasoning tends to be studied by philosophers alone. The project is to bring the two together in order to provide a framework for understanding how motor planning and practical reasoning interact in understanding and in performing actions.

ACTION REPRESENTATIONS AND THEIR IMPAIRMENT Neuroscience Programme sponsored by Compagnia San Paolo. The aim of the project is to investigate the cortical action organisation in humans from both a functional and computational point of view, elucidating its role in intention understanding as well as in related impairments, with special reference to autism.

NEUROPHILOSOPHY The main aim of Neurophilosophy is to foster research in both philosophy and brain science. It will run a series of lectures and seminars covering various fields of research such as philosophy of mind, psychology, cognitive science and cognitive neuroscience.

CENTRE FOR THE STUDY OF SOCIAL ACTION The Centre for the Study of Social Action (CSSA) is an interdisciplinary research centre based at the University of Milan. Its main goal is to promote collaboration and interaction between scholars interested in the study of action from a philosophical, psychological, and social-scientific perspective. The Centre promotes seminars, workshops, and conferences, and hosts visiting scholars working on topics that fall within the scope of its research.

MORE GEOMETRICO More Geometrico is an interdisciplinary research group devoted to the investigation of the increasingly fundamental role played by geometrical and topological methods and ideas in physics, life sciences and cognitive neuroscience.
