Chair of Philosophy I

I am Professor of Philosophy and joined the Department at the start of the Winter Semester 2013-14. I am also external member of the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy, where I worked for two years as assistant professor. Before that I worked at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen in the Faculty of Philosophy. I have completed my PhD in February 2008 at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation in Amsterdam, under the supervision of Johan van Benthem (Amsterdam and Stanford) and Martin van Hees (Groningen). I am associate editor of ErkenntnisTopoiTheory and Decision Library Series A, and Section Editor for the "Logic, Computation and Agency" Section of the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (the latter together with Eric Pacuit and Johan van Benthem).

Areas of expertise

I study questions of rationality in strategic interaction, learning and belief revision in social network, structure and justification of norms, and the philosophy of shared agency. For this I use methods from logic, computer science, and decision and game theory.


For my current and past courses, please see the P&E intranet.
