I am a Marie Curie Post-doctoral fellow at the Laboratory for Applied Ontology (ISCT-CNR). I work on the ODASP project, which aims to develop an ontology driven approach to nominal systematic polysemy in WordNet. I was previously a Post-doctoral fellow on the ANR-DFG NOMAL Project (IHPST-Paris), working on the semantics and ontology of nominalizations.

I have received a PhD in philosophy from the Sorbonne University (Paris). I was trained in Philosophy, (Sorbonne) Logic (Sorbonne) and Cognitive Science (ENS/EHESS/Polytechnique/UPMC).



Research Interests

  • Natural language semantics and in particular lexical semantics.
  • Philosophical formal ontology, among which the theory of dependence, grounding, constitution, mereology
  • The interplay of the above two and their applications to computational ontologies and their use for natural language processing tasks
