My name is Antje, and I am a new postdoc at the Department of Philosophy and the History of Ideas under a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship. I am originally from Germany, where I completed my undergraduate studies in Philosophy, Mathematics, and English Linguistics at the University of Tübingen. In 2016, I received my PhD from Utrecht University, and I held postdoc positions at the University of Konstanz and Stockholm University before coming to Aarhus.

My research interests lie at the intersection of philosophy and logic. In particular, my work is focused on the philosophy and logic of time and modality and deals with themes like the open future, real possibilities, indeterminism, agency, and change. In the context of my Marie Skłodowska-Curie project “Reasoning about processes: a logico-philosophical investigation” I will investigate the theoretical foundations of a dynamic reality and develop formal tools to adequately represent the idea that our world is full of happenings and doings. The aim is to devise a logical framework for reasoning about processes in an indeterministic setting that is philosophically well-informed and which ties in with the study of tense and aspect in linguistics as well as with logics of agency in computer science.
