Nicolas Troquard

I am an assistant professor at the KRDB research center in Bozen-Bolzano (Italy), and a research associate at the Laboratoire d'Algorithmique, Complexité et Logique in Créteil (France).

From 2014 to 2016, I was a teacher and researcher (ATER) at Université Paris-Est Créteil and at the technical institute of Sénart-Fontainebleau. From 2010 to 2014, I was a Marie Curie fellow, working on my project Logical Analysis of Socio-Technical Systems at the Institute of Cognitive Siences and Technologies (LOA-ISTC-CNR, Trento). From 2007 to 2010, I was a research associate at the University of Liverpool. I obtained my PhD in Artificial Intelligence in 2007 from the University of Toulouse and the University of Trento.

I am a computer scientist. I am interested in logic, artificial intelligence, multiagent systems, ontologies, games, social choice, and formal philosophy.
