About

Bortolan Photo. 2 copyI am a Lecturer in Philosophy in the Department of Political and Cultural Studies at Swansea University, which I joined in January 2020. Prior to this, I was a Lecturer and a Teaching Fellow at the University of Aberdeen, and an IRC Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Fellow at University College Dublin. I was previously a Tutor in the Department of Philosophy at Durham University where I obtained my PhD in 2016. Before starting my PhD in Durham, I received a master’s and a bachelor’s degree (both conferred with the highest honours) from Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele (Milan, Italy). A Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholar during the academic year 2010-2011, I was previously the holder of an Erasmus-LLP program grant which allowed me to spend five months as a visiting student at the Université de Lausanne (Lausanne, Switzerland) (2007-2008).
