Lorenz Demey
  • In 2007 Lorenz Demey obtained a BA in Philosophy at the KU Leuven (with a Mathematics Minor) and in 2008 he obtained an MA in Philosophy at the KU Leuven, wth a masters thesis on the semantics and pragmatics of definite and indefinite descriptions, a topic at the interface of philosophy of language and formal semantics (supervised by Leon Horsten).
  • In 2010 he obtained an MSc in Logic at the University of Amsterdam, with a masters thesis on probabilistic dynamic epistemic logic (supervised by Johan van Benthem and Dick de Jongh).
  • In February 2014 he obtained his PhD in Philosophy. His PhD project explores the interaction between technical and philosophical work in epistemic logic and (formal) epistemology. It was supervised by Stefaan Cuypers, and carried out on a predoctoral fellowship of the Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO) at the KU Leuven Institute of Philosophy. As of October 2014 he is a postdoctoral fellow of the Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO) at the KU Leuven Institute of Philosophy working on the Logical Geometry project.
  • His other research interests include the philosophies of science, language and mathematics, and the mathematical environment of modal logic (algebra, topology, etc.). He is also taking courses in the Advanced Master programme in Artificial Intelligence.
