I am currently a Post-Doc Research Fellow in the ERC Project REScEU where I investigate political conflicts and realistic forms of solidarity. I received my PhD in 2015 from Università Statale di Milano defending the thesis: “The Normative Power of Necessity: Making Sense of Political Realism”. In 2014 I was visiting PhD at the University of Cambridge under Raymond Geuss. I have written articles on Political Realism (Towards a Realistic Conception of Politics, 2017), Solidarity (Realistic Solidarity for the Real EU, 2016) and the philosophy of Thomas Hobbes (Lex Facit Veritatem, 2015). I am also the author of a short monograph on game theoretic interpretations of Hobbes's "state of nature" (E fu lo Stato, 2010).
