After completing undergraduate degrees in philosophy and in mathematics at the University of Texas at Austin, Charles B. Cross earned his Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh in 1985 under the supervision of Richmond H. Thomason. Chuck taught at the University of Cincinnati, did research at the U.S. Naval Research Lab, and taught at Reed College before joining the University of Georgia, where he is now Professor of Philosophy and Faculty Fellow of the Institute for Artificial Intelligence.
Chuck works in philosophical logic and is especially interested in the logic and semantics of conditionals and in the roles conditionals play in metaphysical and epistemological issues. He has published on a variety of other topics (including explanation as well as the Paradox of the Knower) and has a growing interest in the metaphysics of particulars in the context of modality.
