I come from Gallipoli, a little town in Salento, the southernmost part of Puglia, Southern Italy.
I live in Lund, Sweden, since 2000.
In Italy, I took a bachelor of law at the University of Rome ”La Sapienza”, and then a Ph.D. in law at the University of Lecce, where I thereafter worked as a researcher and a teacher at the Faculty of Law.
In Sweden, I took a bachelor of philosophy (main subject: Italian) at Lund University, where I currently work as teacher in Italian since 2008. Between 2010 and 2015, I was a Ph.D. student in Italian Studies, Linguistics. The main topics of my research are: Verbs of Propositional Attitude; Subordinators; Factivity; Language attrition. I successfully defended my thesis on September 5th 2015.
My areas of interest are: Semantics; Pragmatics; Syntax; Philosophy of Language; Legal Language; Language Acquisition.
I also translate children’s books (from Swedish into Italian). I have translated books by Astrid Lindgren and Sven Nordqvist.
