Aleks Knoks


I’m a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Luxembourg with the Individual and Collective Reasoning Group.

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

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. While in grad school, I also spent some time as a visiting fellow at the Humboldt University of Berlin and the MCMP in Munich.

Before that, I studied logic in Amsterdam and Ghent, philosophy in my native Latvia, as well as did some voluntary work at a L’Arche community in Lyon.
