Hi, I’m Matteo!
I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Ruhr University Bochum in the Emmy-Noether research group “From Perception to Belief and Back Again”.
I obtained my Ph.D. in Philosophy at the “Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy”, of which I remain an external member.
In my research, I study scientific reasoning in connection with several areas of philosophy, such as General Philosophy of Science, Epistemology, Logic, Philosophy of Language, Philosophy of Mathematics, Philosophy of Cognitive Science, Philosophy of Computation, and the History of Analytic Philosophy.
More specifically, I work on topics such as conceptual change in science, Carnapian explication, values in science, conceptual spaces, theory choice in science, theoretical terms in science, the normativity of logic, the Church-Turing thesis, naturalized epistemology, and cognitive models of science. I also have a strong interest for Logical Empiricism, especially for the works of Carnap and Waismann, and for the philosophy of Kuhn.
