I am a professor and University Research Chair at the  Department of Philosophy of the VU Amsterdam. Before that, I was a professor and Rosalind Franklin fellow at the Department of Theoretical Philosophy of the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Groningen (2011-2018). I am also a Professorial Fellow at Arché in St. Andrews (2019-2024), an external member of the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy, and one of the Editors-in-Chief of Synthese. I am currently running the ERC Consolidator project 'The Social Epistemology of Argumentation' (2018-2023).

My main fields of research are history and philosophy of logic, philosophy of mathematics, and social epistemology. I also have general interests in medieval philosophy, philosophy of psychology and cognitive science, general philosophy of science, philosophy of mind, issues pertaining to gender and race, and empirically-informed approaches to philosophy in general.

Here is the text of my inaugural lecture, where I explain my conception of philosophy and describe my intellectual trajectory. Here is a video of the lecture (it starts with an introduction in Dutch by the dean, but the lecture itself is in English).
