Institut Jean Nicod

Post-doc SublimAE (ANR)
Free field
I am a post-doc at the Jean Nicod Institute in the ANR project SublimAE (“The Sublime and Aesthetic Experiences”, ANR-18-CE27-0023-01). Previously I was an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow at the Department of Philosophy at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, post-doctoral researcher at the University of Geneva (Department of Philosophy and Swiss Center for Affective Sciences) as holder of a Swiss Government Excellence Scholarship for Foreign Scholars, and post-doctoral researcher at the Jean Nicod Institute, in the ANR project FICTION (“Fiction in emotion”, ANR-11-EMCO-0008). At the same institute and the University Pierre and Marie Curie (UPMC) I qualified as Doctor in philosophy and cognitive sciences under the supervision of Jérôme Dokic (EHESS-IJN).

My main areas of research are philosophy of mind and philosophy of science, but also epistemology, philosophy of language, aesthetics and philosophy of emotions. One of the more specific topic areas of my investigation is imagination. My research focuses on many aspects concerning the imagination : its unity and heterogeneity, its phenomenology, its perspectival nature, how it relates to other mental phenomena (such as supposition, memory, perception, belief, acceptance, emotions). I am also interested in the debate on thought experiments, more precisely in the relationship between scientific and philosophical thought experiments, as well as in cognitive approaches to thought experimentation.
