Arthur Van Camp

Welcome to my web page!

I am an assistant professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence Group.

Arthur Van Camp In 2020 – 2023 I was a research associate at the University of Bristol in the Department of Philosophy under the guidance of prof. Jason Konek, and in 2019 – 2020 a postdoctoral researcher at Université de Technologie de Compiègne in the department Heudiasyc under the guidance of prof. Sébastien Destercke. I have been a visitor in 2018 at Carnegie Mellon University in the Department of Philosophy under the guidance of prof. Teddy Seidenfeld.

From September 2011 until January 2018 I was a PhD student the Department of Electronics and Information systems at Ghent University, under the supervision of prof. Gert de Cooman and prof. Enrique Miranda. I obtained my PhD on 15 January 2018.
