Luca Oliva, Ph.D.

I am an instructional assistant professor (since 2014) of the Liberal Studies program at the University of Houston, a Carnegie-designated Tier-One public research university. I specialize in epistemology and philosophy of mathematics; I am also interested in meta-ethics. My papers have appeared in the Kantian ReviewRethinking Kant (NAKS Series), and in collections of Cambridge University Press, and De Gruyter Publishers. I have taught undergraduate and graduate courses in cognitive science, logic, and ethics, among others. In the last years, I was an academic visitor at the University of Oxford (Trinity Term 2016, 2017), a visiting professor of the Institute Vienna Circle at the University of Vienna (summer term 2015, 2017) and a visiting professor at the University of Bergamo in Italy (summer term 2015).
