Giacomo Giannini

I am currently working as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow at Heinrich Heine University, Düsseldorf. Previously, I was a Fellow in the department of Philosophy, Logic, and Scientific Method of the London School of Economics.

My central research area is in metaphysics and the metaphysics of science. I'm especially interested in modality, powers, essences, dependence & fundamentality, time, and laws of nature.

I'm also interested in the epistemology of modality, metaontology, meta-metaphysics, and in general in metaphilosophy.

I completed a PhD at Durham University in 2020 with a dissertation entitled 'Powers for Dispositionalism: A Metaphysical Ground for New Actualism'. Prior to that, I did an MA and a BA in Philosophy at the University of Bologna, Italy.
