I am currently a Humboldt Experienced Researcher Fellow at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy, University of Munich. I have recently been elected Board Member of the International Network for Economic Method and I am serving as Associate Editor for the Journal of Economic Methodology. Since 2016, I am an Associate Member of the Centre for the Philosophy of the Social Science, University of Helsinki. In the past, I held positions in The Netherlands, Finland, and Germany and I completed my Ph.D. in Logic and Philosophy of Science at Tilburg University. I have recently obtained the Habilitation to Associate Professor from the Italian Ministry of Higher Education.

My primary research interests are in general philosophy of science (models, explanations, interdisciplinary science),  social philosophy (norms, game theory), and philosophy of economics (methodology of behavioral/experimental/development economics).

For an overview of my research, here is an interview that I had with 3:AM Magazine.
