- CV, Trpin Borut (September 2019) (50 KByte)
Borut Trpin obtained a PhD degree (2018) in philosophy at the University of Ljubljana with a dissertation on learning from conditionals. In 2018 he was awarded an Ernst Mach Grant for postdoctoral research, which he conducted in the Department of Philosophy (KGW) at the University of Salzburg (study year 2018/2019). In 2019 he was awarded a Humboldt Research Fellowship for Postdoctoral Researchers to research probabilistic versions of inference to the best explanation at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (2019-2021).
Borut’s main research interests are in formal epistemology and philosophy of science. Some of the topics that particularly interest him are different kinds of probabilistic belief updating, inference to the best explanation, and indicative conditionals. He likes to use computer simulations for philosophical research.
