Academic interests

I'm writing a thesis on the attribution of concepts: when and how we say that someone possesses a concept. I focus primarily on mathematical and scientific concepts. This makes my main focus the philosophy of science and the philosophy of mathematics in particular. Other interests include mathematical and philosophical logic, foundations of mathematics, philosophy of logic, philosophy of language, and on off days I like to read some virtue ethics.


Bachelor in Philosophy at the University of Amsterdam, with a year of mathematics. MSc in Logic at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) of the University of Amsterdam.
