My research is focused on psychological underpinnings of philosophical concepts and theories. Recently, the main themes of my work are personal identity, beginning and end of life, and memory. I hold a PhD in Philosophy from the Centre for Philosophy of Memory, Grenoble Alpes University, France.

I edit Experimental Philosophy: Persons on philpapers.
