Willem Labuschagne

Willem Labuschagne is a senior lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand and a member of its Artificial Intelligence Research Laboratory. His research is devoted to the exploration of the logical semantics of nonmonotonic logic. His current goal is to find psychological and epistemological foundations for nonmonotonic logic, a task enriched by the perspective that Johannes Heidema contributes.
