Personal information

Welcome to my home page. I am Full Professor of Mathematics at the University of Lisbon (Portugal) and member of the research center CMAF and of its Mathematical Logic Group. Click here to get my CV.

Academic interests

Mathematical Logic, specially proof theory and weak systems of analysis, and Philosophy and Foundations of Mathematics. I have also written two papers in Ancient Philosophy on the problem of falsity in Parmenides and Plato. For some expository essays in portuguese, click here.

Teaching 2012/2013

In the first semester I am teaching Philosophy of Mathematics for the master program in History and Philosophy of Science, Mathematical Logic for the master program in Mathematics and Proof Theory for the doctoral program in Mathematics. In the second semestre, I teach Topics in Mathematical Logic for the doctoral program in Mathematics.
