Rohan joined the department at UC Davis in 2018. Prior to that he was a post-doctoral researcher on the ‘Roots of Deduction’ project at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.

Research Focus

Rohan's research is in logic, predominantly focusing on philosophical and technical issues concerning modal logic, translations between logics, proof theory, non-classical logic, and the semantic paradoxes. Of particular interest are questions concerning the philosophical significance of translation and expressivity results in logic, and problems and prospects for substructural, particularly nonreflexive and nontransitive, resolutions of the semantic paradoxes.  He is generally interested in any area of philosophy where formal methods, especially those taken from logic and computer science, can be fruitfully applied.
