PROFILE

After graduating in philosophy from the University of Rome 'La Sapienza' (1983), I got a fellowship from the Istituto italiano Studi Storici in Naples (1984-5), then,  from 1987 to 1990, F.A. Yates fellow of the Warburg Institute, London.

In 1990-1 I was appointed Honorary Research Fellow, Dept. of History and Philosophy of Science, University College London.  I was Ricercatore  (1992-2001) and   associate professor (2001-2012) at the University of Cassino.

My research focused on 17th-century science, notably on English science and on Robert Boyle - whose complete correspondence I edited (with M. Hunter and L. Principe).

I also published a book-length study on atomism and chemistry as well as  articles in international peer reviewed journals on early modern chemistry, medicine and  natural philosophy.

I am in  the Editorial Board of Nuncius, of  Intellectual History Review, of Ambix, and of the Newton Project. I am General Editor (with S. Ricci), of the VIII Appendice of Enciclopedia Treccani, devoted to Italian Science.

In 2012 I was Visting Professor at the Centre d'Études Supérieures de la Renaissance in Tours.
