About

Yvette Oortwijn
I am a PhD student at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation at the University of Amsterdam and at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the AlGA group, supervised by Arianna Betti, Antske Fokkens and Bettina Speckmann. My project concerns the philosophy and methodology of distributional semantics.

I completed my bachelor degree in Philosophy at the University of Amsterdam in 2017 and my master degree in Logic at the University of Amsterdam in 2019. My thesis, Dynamic Set Theory, in the Master of Logic concerned the philosophy of set theory.

My main research interests lie in methodology in philosophy, digital humanities, computational linguistics, philosophy of language, philosophy of mathematics, history of philosophy, metaphysics and formal and philosophical logic.
