Alexander Bentkamp

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Theoretical Computer Science section of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Netherlands. My Ph.D. is part of the Matryoshka project, where I work on extending the superposition calculus to higher-order logic. My Ph.D. supervisor is Jasmin Christian Blanchette. Before my Ph.D., I studied mathematics and computational linguistics.
