Dr. Sofia Bonicalzi


I am an associate professor in Moral Philosophy (M-FIL/03, with Scientific Habilitation) at the Department of Philosophy, Communication and Performing Art, Roma Tre University. I am also affiliated with the Cognition, Value and Behavior research group at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich.


I work on moral philosophy, philosophy of mind/action, philosophy of cognitive neuroscience, and moral psychology from an interdisciplinary perspective. My current research focuses on the philosophy and neuroscience of volition, action and responsibility. Previously, I have been an assistant professor at Roma Tre University, and a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, UCL (Action and Body Group), at the School of Advanced Study (University of London), where I was also a team member of The Human Mind Project, and at the Chair of Philosophy of MindFaculty of Philosophy, Philosophy of Science and the Study of Religion, Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich.
