Carlotta Pavese, Andrew W. Mellon Assistant Professor    editCarlotta Pavese

I am currently the Andrew W. Mellon Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Duke University, where I have been an Assistant Professor since 2014. In 2013-2014, I was a Bersoff Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow of Philosophy at NYU.  Before that, I was a graduate student at Rutgers University. I have broad interests. My areas of specialization are philosophy of language, epistemology, philosophy of mind, action theory, and philosophical logic. Other than philosophy, I do linguistics, mostly formal semantics and syntax, which I learned here.  Originally, I am from Italy and grew up in a village on the hills of Monferrato (Calamandrana) where good wine abounds. You can find my CV here.
