About Ali Enayat

I am a mathematical logician whose research work is focused on model theory of arithmetic and set theory, and axiomatic theories of truth. I am currently a member of the team of researchers working on the project EPISTEMIC AND SEMANTIC COMMITMENTS OF FOUNDATIONAL THEORIES (supported by a MAESTRO grant of the Polish National Science Centre). My CV can be found on a link on the upper right corner of this page, below my picture.

I began my work at GU as Professor of Logic in May of 2013. Since July 1, 2020, I have been academically affiliated with GU as Emeritus Professor of Logic. Prior to my arrival in Gothenburg in 2013, I served as Professor of Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at American University, Washington, DC. I have also held faculty positions at the Mathematics Departments of Sharif University (Iran), Western Illinois University (USA), and San Jose State University (USA); as well as visiting research positions at IPM (Iran), the Department of Philosophy at Utrecht University (the Netherlands), and the Mittag-Leffler Institute (Sweden).

I grew up in Tehran, Iran during the ancien régime, and graduated from Alborz High School in 1976, three years before the Iranian Revolution. I received my B.S. degree in Mathematics from Iowa State University (1979), and my Ph.D. in Mathematics (1984) from the University of Wisconsin (Madison), under the direction of Ken Kunen with a thesis on models of set theory.

Current editorial responsibilities:
