Logics for Practical Reasoning

Our research spans the foundations and applications of non classical logics with a particular emphasis on: logics for reasoning under uncertainty (both quantitatively and qualitatively construed); depth-bounded logics; logic and information; formal argumentation theory; logic in decision theory.
