Aleks Knoks


I’m a philosopher, currently affiliated with the Institute of Philosophy and the Department of Computer Science at the University of Luxembourg.

My research interests span a range of questions from traditional areas that include epistemology, ethics, logic, and artificial intelligence. I’m particularly interested in the structure of various normative domains, which I like to think about drawing on ideas from (different areas of) philosophy, logic, and computer science.

Before coming to Luxembourg, I was a postdoc at the University of Zurich. Before that, I got a PhD from the University of Maryland (in 2020). My advisor was John Horty and my dissertation focused on the applications of logics for defeasible reasoning to questions in epistemology. Before that, I studied philosophy and logic in Berlin, Ghent, Amsterdam, and Riga, as well as did some voluntary work at a L’Arche community in Lyon.

I’m also an associate editor of Dialectica.
