Benedict Eastaugh received an MA in Logic and Philosophy of Mathematics (2011) and a PhD in Philosophy (2015) from the University of Bristol. His PhD thesis assessed the philosophical ramifications of results in reverse mathematics. Before coming to the MCMP, Benedict was a postdoctoral researcher on the Leverhulme Trust-funded project Set Theoretic Pluralism (principal investigators: Toby Meadows and Philip Welch) at the University of Aberdeen and the University of Bristol.
Benedict’s research interests lie primarily in logic and philosophy of mathematics, including foundations of mathematics and the role of mathematics in science and philosophy. He is currently applying tools and results from reverse mathematics to problems in epistemology and philosophical logic, including axiomatic theories of truth and the foundations of mathematical philosophy.
