I studied philosophy and ethics at the Università degli Studi di Padova (Italy), I was visiting student at the University of St Andrews (Scotland) from fall 2004 to spring 2005 and at the University of California Los Angeles (CA) from fall 2006 to spring 2007. In 2007 I graduated from the Universita’ degli Studi di Padova (UNIPD) with a Master’s thesis on the implications of Kenneth Arrow’s impossibility theorem in social choice theory. In February 2008 I entered a 3-year Ph.D. program in the department of philosophy at Tilburg University and the Tilburg Center for Logic and Philosophy of Science, under the supervision of professor Stephan Hartmann and professor Pieter Ruys. From November 2009 to January 2010 I was a visiting Ph.D. student at the PPE program (Philosophy, Politics and Economics) of the University of Pennsylvania. From July to September 2010 I was a visiting Ph.D. student at the Sydney Centre for the Foundations of Science, at the University of Sydney. In February 2011, while in the process of finishing my doctoral thesis with the title Consensus and Disagreement in Small Committees, I took up a position as a postdoctoral researcher in the Philosophy Department of the University of Bayreuth, where I also taught several seminars to the students of the Philosophy & Economics program. In January 2013 I moved to Helsinki to pursue a research postdoc at the Finnish Centre of Excellence in the Philosophy of the Social Sciences. In 2015 I received the title of Docent in Social and Moral Philosophy from the University of Helsinki (“Dosentti” in Finnish, equivalent Adjunct Professor). Also in 2015, I received a grant of € 100.000 from the Finnish Cultural Foundation for a project titled The Trinity of Policy Making: Evidence, Causation, and Argumentation, to study how scientific evidence is filtered and translated into policy advice, especially through the use of expert judgment and argumentation.
