Iris van de Pol is a PhD student at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam and is affiliated with the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour at the Radboud University Nijmegen.
She is jointly supervised by Jakub Szymanik, Iris van Rooij, Nina Gierasimczuk, Ivan Toni and Johan van Benthem. Her project is about the complexity of communicating and reasoning about mental states, in particular in the context of non-verbal communication games.
Her research involves computational modeling (using epistemic logic and game theory) and (parameterized) complexity analysis, and a collaboration with cognitive neuroscientists to design and conduct behavioral and neuroscientific experiments to test model predictions. She is also interested in philosophy of (cognitive) science – in particular in the different levels of investigation used in (cognitive) science and related methodological and philosophical issues.
