Pavel Naumov

Visiting Associate Professor of Computer Science

Pavel has Diploma in Mathematics from Moscow State University and Ph.D. in Computer Science from Cornell University, both with specialization in Logic. His present research is focused on logical systems for reasoning about multi-agent systems, information flow, formal epistemology, social networks, and game theory. Previously, he has published papers on proof complexity, type theory, automated deduction, and modal logics.
