Expert in: Leibniz
- Early Modern philosophy

- Philosophy of the Enlightenment
- Philosophy of science
My research concerns modern philosophy (17th and 18th centuries), in particular Leibniz and the German and French Enlightenment. I am particularly interested in the epistemological and metaphysical aspects, such as the problem of individuation, the relationship between the mind and body, conceptions of space, analytical and synthetical methods, theories of hypothesis and definition, the systematic character of knowledge and the relations between mental faculties.
My recent research mainly deals with the reception of Leibniz in 18th-century German and French philosophy. Some of my studies have also concerned Kant's philosophy, particularly his methodology.
