My name is Carlo Ierna and I’m currently working as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Philosophy of Utrecht University. My research project concerns the renewal of the ideal of “Philosophy as Science” in the School of Brentano. In 2012 I was awarded a Dutch NWO Innovational Research Incentives Scheme VENI grant.
From January to May 2014 I was Visiting Fellow in Philosophy at Harvard.
I have an MA in Philosophy (2002) and an MSc in Cognitive Artificial Intelligence (2008) from Utrecht University, and a PhD in Philosophy from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (2009). From 2009 to 2012 I worked on a postdoctoral project at the KULeuven on the philosophy of mathematics and logic in the School of Brentano.
