Ph.D. in Philosophy

I am very pleased to announce that the University of Geneva has awarded me the title of Doctor of Philosophy for my dissertation entitled “The Asymmetric Nature of Time”.

Even if writing a thesis is, in many respects, a solitary adventure, it could not be pursued without the support of many professors, colleagues and friends. I would like to take advantage of this post to thank all those who have accompanied me during these four wonderful years.

Ph. D. Defense

I am pleased to announce that my Ph. D. defense will take place on Tuesday, April 20, 2021 at 9:00 am at the University of Geneva.

Given the circumstances, it is unfortunately not possible to attend “in person”. However, you have the possibility to follow my defense in videoconference via the zoom application.

If you are interested, please write me an email and I will send you the zoom link.
