I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Research Centre on Ethics, with the supervision of Peter Dietsch and Pablo Gilabert. I was previously a Berggruen Postdoctoral Fellow in Philosophy at New York University, supervised by Kwame Anthony Appiah and mentored by Elizabeth Anderson. I hold a PhD from the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales and the University of Catania; as a PhD student, I was based at the Centre “Maurice Halbwachs” at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris. I hold degrees in Philosophy from the Sapienza University of Rome.

My primary areas of research are contemporary political and social philosophy and applied ethics, with a focus on the philosophy of work, social inequalities and technology. I explore questions such as: In what cases is work morally objectionable? What strategies help realizing social equality at work? How could technology help in making social cooperation fairer? To deal with these issues, I am developing a new normative framework based on the norm of ‘contributive parity’, a reinterpretation of the relational egalitarian ideal of social equality which enables to distinguish between objectionable and preferable organizational forms. I am currently working on projects aimed at bridging the emerging field of the philosophy of work with the ethics of technology from an interdisciplinary perspective (e.g., algorithmic management, social robots in the division of labor), while turning my dissertation into a book, Cooperating as Peers: Rethinking Work Justice in an Unequal World.

My research and teaching interests also include topics in economic ethics, distributive justice, the political philosophy of technology, feminist theory, social theory.
