a page about logic, logic and, of course, LOGIC

I am currently a full professor at the Department of Philosophy of UFSC. Before coming here, I have taught at the Department of Informatics and Applied Mathematics (DIMAp / CCET) of UFRN for 18 years. I am also a partner of the Security and Quantum Information Group (SQIG / IT).



If a little knowledge is dangerous, where is the man 

who has so much as to be out of danger?

(Thomas Henry Huxley, 1877)

Here you should find a reasonably updated list of my main publications (see also this repository).  Click here for my CV and here for my Google Scholar profile.  Also, here are links to the usual scientific profiles at ORCID, Scopus, and Web of Science.  My PhD Thesis and my MSc Thesis may also be found online.

I currently act as a supervisor both at the Graduate Studies in Systems and Computing (research area: Foundations of Computer Science) of UFRN and the Graduate Program in Philosophy of UFRN (concentration area: Logic and Formal Philosophy).  I also coordinate the CNPq research group CAROL.  In 2009-10 I spent my first sabbatical leave visiting the Theory and Logic Group of TU-Wien, and in 2016-17 I spent my second sabbatical leave visiting the Group on Logic and Epistemology of RUB, as a recipient of the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award, in the field of Theoretical Philosophy.

In the course of the last twenty-something years, I have participated in over a hundred conferences and research meetings, as contributor, as invited speaker and as tutorialist, and have lectured in Argentina, Australia, Austria in Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Italy, Israel, Japan, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, the UK, the US, the Vatican, and Venezuela.
