I am currently a PhD student at the University of Geneva (Switzerland), where I work in the metaphysics of time, under the supervision of Prof. Fabrice Correia. I also work as a lecturer at the University of Neuchatel, where I teach the philosophy of time. I am a member of eidos (the Genevan Centre for Metaphysics) and GEM (Groupe d’Études en Métaphysique du Collège de France).
I received my BA in philosophy and history and my MA in philosophy from the University of Neuchâtel. As a student of the École Normale Supérieure of Paris (international selection), I also obtained the diploma of the ENS and a second MA in contemporary philosophy from the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (PhilMaster). I spent the spring term 2016 at the New York University, and the academic year 2017-2018 at the Universitat de Barcelona.
I am mostly interested in the metaphysics of time and the philosophy of science. In my PhD thesis, entitled “The Asymmetric Nature of Time”, I aim (i) to provide an accurate characterization of the asymmetry between the “fixed past” and the “open future”, (ii) to determine which model of the temporal structure of the world is most appropriate to accommodate the asymmetry and (iii) to reconcile the asymmetry with our best physics.
Besides philosophy, I am interested in Austrian literature (e.g. Karl Kraus, Robert Musil), French literature (e.g. Georges Bernanos), music (classical, post-punk and electronic) and sports (e.g. ice hockey, running).
