CV

Research Interests

  • Philosophical logic: Non-classical logics, proof-theoretic semantics, (logical) paradoxes, properties of consequence relations, identity of proofs, comparing different proof systems
  • Philosophy of language/epistemology: Vagueness, theories of truth

Other interests

I've been doing ballet and Krav Maga for a couple of years now and I also try out other sports from time to time that are related to dance or martial arts. To relax, I like carving wood and once in a while I even manage to get something useful out of it.
