This is the personal homepage of Alexander Steen. I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Faculty of Science, Technology and Communication (FSTC) of the University of Luxembourg. I'm working on the automated theorem prover Leo-III, a reasoning system for classical higher-order logic (HOL) and further expressive, non-classical logics (including higher-order modal logics and deontic logics). My ORCID ID is 0000-0001-8781-9462.
My current research interests include theory and practice of higher-order reasoning, including efficient data structures for higher-order theorem provers, and related implementation techniques. Furthermore, I'm interested in practical aspects and applications of logics and formal methods in computer science, mathematics and philosophy. Also, I like functional programming (e.g. in Haskell).
In my freetime, I'm a bass singer in a choir for classical music of various periods and singer in a Schola Cantorum (Vokalschola), see "Links" section.
I completed the advanced training certificate for unversity teaching (Hochschuldidaktisches Lehrzertifikat) of Freie Universität Berlin (Support für die Lehre).
