Research interests
My research belongs to the area of uncertainty reasoning.
I study manyvalued logic in general
and
Lukasiewicz logic in particular,
which I approach from various perspectives:
logical, algebraic, probabilistic. Recent research interests are in the area of logic for program verification.
