Eleonora Cresto

I completed undegraduate studies in Philosophy at the University of Buenos Aires, and received my Ph.D. from Columbia University (NY), in 2006.

Currently I am Philosophy Professor at Universidad Torcuato Di Tella and UNTREF (Buenos Aires); I am also a Permanent Researcher at the CONICET (National Council for Scientific and Technical Research)/ IIF-SADAF.

My main areas of research are formal and mainstream epistemology, with interest in philosophy of science, decision theory, and philosophy of logic.


Since 2016 I'm Associate Editor of Erkenntnis.
