  • Biography

    Dr. Luis Manuel Augusto has recently completed a 6-year postdoctoral project in Psychology and Cognitive Science at the Universities of Sussex and Oporto after having completed graduate studies in Philosophy – Ph.D. and M.A. – at the University of Paris (Sorbonne and Panthéon-Sorbonne). For these research projects he was awarded by FCT long-term fellowships co-funded by the European Social Fund. He also completed a M.Sc. in Computational Mathematics at Universidade Aberta, Lisbon.

    He researches into human and artificial cognition, with a focus on unconscious cognition and from a mostly formal perspective involving in particular logic and computation. He has published the results of this research in renowned international journals (e.g., Consciousness and Cognition, Axiomathes) and publishing houses (e.g., College Publications).
    Luis Manuel Augusto has attended lecture series at the Tavistock Clinic (London) and the Institute of Psychiatry at the Maudsley (London), and he has conducted research for short periods at the University of Nottingham (research student at the Dept. of Philosophy) and the University of Barcelona (visiting researcher at the Dept. of Logic, History and Philosophy of Science).
