Please join us in congratulating Alexandru Marcoci on winning this year’s Lakatos MSc Scholarship. Alexandru received a BA in Philosophy (2008) from the University of Bucharest and an MSc in Logic (2010) from the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation in Amsterdam. He is mainly interested in formal epistemology, (dynamic) epistemic logic and game theory. His research so far has been on offering a formal framework for reasoning about the surprise examination paradox and showing what impact this paradox can have on logics of belief and knowledge. Currently he is interested in the epistemic foundations of game theory and in modal logics for reasoning about games. Outside academia Alexandru is interested in international relations and in 2011 he was an intern at the Romanian Embassy in the Hague.
