I am an Assistant Professor at Utrecht University and I hold a Ph.D. in Logic and Philosophy of Science from Tilburg University. Before Utrecht, I was a Humboldt Fellow at the LMU Munich and, before that, I held positions in The Netherlands, Germany, Finland, and Italy–both as Assistant Professor and Postdoctoral Fellow. I have recently obtained the Habilitation to Associate Professor from the Italian Ministry of Higher Education and I am pursuing my habilitation project at the LMU Munich.

Since 2021, I am an 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.

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.
