Nicolai, Carlo

Dr. Carlo Nicolai

Marie Sklodowska-Curie Research Fellow

Further Information

I have completed a Masters Degree at the Catholic University of Milan (2009) and a D.Phil at Somerville College, University of Oxford (2010-2013). I have also worked as a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Oxford supported by the AHRC Project "Inexpressibility and Reflection in the Formal Sciences" (2014) and by the Analysis Trust (2014/15).

Research Interests

My research interests are in logic and philosophical logic (formal theories of truth, predicate approaches to modality, formal theories of syntax and propositions, general theory of reductions), philosophy of mathematics (commitment of mathematical theories, mathematical explanation), metaphysics and philosophy of language (formal approaches to de re modality, truth-theoretic deflationism).
