Biografia

Laureata in Filosofia presso l’Università di Padova con una tesi in logica matematica dal titolo “Il teorema di incompletezza di Gödel e il principio russelliano del circolo vizioso” (relatore: Prof. Enrico Martino), ha conseguito il titolo di dottore di ricerca in Filosofia del Linguaggio presso l’Università del Piemonte Orientale con la tesi “Quantificazione plurale e revisione predicativa dei Grundgesetze freghiani” (relatore: Prof. Gabriele Usberti, Università di Siena – commissione: Prof. Andrea Bonomi, Prof. Enrico Moriconi, Prof. Alfredo Paternoster).

È stata borsista post-lauream presso l’Università di Padova con il progetto “Paradossi ed enunciato indecidibile di Gödel”. Durante il dottorato, è stata visiting fellow presso l’Università di Oxford, l’Istituto Jean Nicod-CNRS di Parigi e il dipartimento di Filosofia della Ohio State University (USA). È stata British Academy Visiting Post-Doctoral fellow presso l’Università di Bristol, borsista di ricerca presso la Facoltà di Filosofia dell’Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele, visiting fellow presso l’Institute of Advanced Study di Londra e presso il progetto “Plurals, Predicates and Paradox” (European Research Council) all’Università di Oslo. Nel 2013 è stata nuovamente visiting fellow alla Ohio State University. Nel 2015, è stata visiting fellow presso il Dipartimento di Filosofia di UC Davis (USA). Nel gennaio 2016, sarà visiting fellow presso il Dipartimento di Filosofia della Bilkent University (Turchia). Attualmente, è ricercatrice a tempo determinato alla Facoltà di Filosofia dell’Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele.

È membro del comitato promotore del network italiano di filosofia della matematica FilMat (www.filmatnetwork.com), del centro di ricerca Cogito (www.cogito.lagado.org), e del CRESA (www.cresa.eu). Fa parte dei collegi di dottorato in Filosofia e Scienza della Mente e in Filosofia dell’Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele.

I suoi interessi di ricerca riguardano il programma astrazionista in filosofia della matematica e il logicismo fregeano, la logica dei predicati del secondo ordine e la logica plurale, il problema del riferimento in matematica.

Attività didattica

Insegna Logica formale (laurea triennale) e Logica filosofica (laurea magistrale) per la Facoltà di Filosofia dell’Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele, dove nel 2012 ha tenuto delle esercitazioni in logica matematica per il corso di Epistemologia e Filosofia della Matematica (titolare: Dr. Andrea Sereni). Insegna inoltre i corsi di Logica della scoperta e dell’innovazione scientifica (Corso di Laurea Magistrale in Biotecnologie Mediche Molecolari e Cellulari, UniSR) e Filosofia e cognizione (Corso di Laurea in Scienze e Tecniche Psicologiche, UniSR). Ha insegnato per il corso di Filosofia della Scienza e bioetica (Corso di Laurea in Scienze e Tecniche Psicologiche, UniSR).
