Honours and Awards
Fields of Scholarship
I'm currently a member of the Amsterdam Dynamics Group, together with group we run the weekly LIRa seminar on Logic and Interactive Rationality. My previous affiliations and memberships include: the Center for Logic and Philosophy of Science (CLWF) in Brussels, the Oxford University Research Group on the Philosophy of Information (IEG), the Research Group in Philosophy of Information (GPI) at the University of Hertfordshire, the group in Brussels working on Foundations of Exact Sciences (FUND) and the Center Leo Apostel (CLEA) in Brussels.
I proud to teach courses on the logical foundations of quantum mechanics and on Epistemic Paradoxes and Philosophical Puzzles in ILLC's international Master of Logic Programme. Further I teach a Bachelor course on Logic and Society in Philosophy and in the international Minor on Logic and Computation. In these courses I show how logic, the science of truth and reasoning, but also game theory and probability theory belong to the most important tools to analyze different processes of information flow. This ranges from the study of quantum logic and the analysis of epistemic paradoxes to the advencement of our understanding of how beliefs are formed andt also how they can be manipulated in society (e.g. via the spread of fake news).
