My research interests are quite broad and span topics in the history of philosophy (especially ancient philosophy and medieval philosophy), epistemology, metaphysics, and philosophy of language and logic.
From January 2023, I am leading a research project, Truth in Ancient and Medieval Philosophy, supported by the European Research Council.
