Aleks Knoks


I’m an academic philosopher. I just started as a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Zurich, with the Zurich Epistemology Group on Rationality. Before that I got a PhD from the University of Maryland at College Park. My dissertation focused on the applications of logics for defeasible reasoning to questions in epistemology.

I specialize in 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 and game theory.
