Research Group: LanCog

I am an Early Career FCT Fellow at LanCog (University of Lisbon), where I carry out a project titled “The Epistemic Authority of the Oppressed: Eradicating Epistemic Injustice through Education”. I have received my PhD from the University of Genoa (2016) with a dissertation on the topic of epistemic and moral authority, and held an Early Stage Marie Curie Fellowship at the University of Edinburgh (within the European Training Network DIAPHORA). My research mainly focuses on epistemology, virtue theory, and the philosophy of education.
