Aleks Knoks


I’m a postdoctoral research fellow in philosophy at the University of Zurich, with the Zurich Epistemology Group on Rationality.

Much of my research lies at the intersection of epistemology and philosophical logic, but my interests are broad, ranging over various questions from the traditional areas of ethics, the philosophy of language, metaphysics, artificial intelligence, as well as decision theory.

Before coming to Zurich, I got a PhD from the University of Maryland at College Park. 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 logic at the ILLC in Amsterdam and philosophy in my home country Latvia.
