Colin Jakob Rittberg (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow)

Colin Jakob Rittberg.jpg

I am the postdoctoral Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow of the VaViM project at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. I am also a research associate at the Centre for Logic and Philosophy of Science at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Before that I was a postdoctoral research assistant at the Mathematical Cognition Centre at Loughborough University. I am currently embedded with Catarina Dutilh Novaes’ ERC-consolidator project The Social Epistemology of Argumentation.

I obtained my Diplom (masters’ degree) in mathematics from the Westfälische Wilhelms Universität Münster (Germany). I began my PhD studies at the Università degli Studi die Palermo (Italy) and finished them at the University of Hertfordshire (UK) under the supervision of Brendan Larvor. After that, I began my postdoctoral work in Brussels.
