Máté Veres (IPA: [ ˈmaːteː vɛrɛʃ]


I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Toronto's Collaborative Program in Ancient and Medieval Philosophy. As of September 2021, I will be a Senior Postdoctoral Fellow (Ambizione) at the Department of Philosophy, University of Geneva.

I received my PhD in Philosophy from the Central European University in November 2016. After graduation, I held research and teaching positions at the University of Hamburg, at the University of Geneva, and at Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest.

During my graduate studies, I was a Fulbright scholar at the Sage School of Philosophy, Cornell University, a visiting graduate student at the Faculty of Classics, University of Cambridge, a research scholarship recipient at the Fondation Hardt, and a visiting junior fellow at the Institut für die Wissenschaften vom Menschen, Vienna. As an undergraduate, I spent one term at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris.


I am currently co-organizing a conference on Sextus' Logic in Context: Methods of Logic and Philosophical Scepticism in Imperial Rome, to be held at the Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen in June 2021.
