I received a BA (fil. kand) in philosophy, mathematics and statistics from Uppsala University in 1969, a Ph.D. in philosophy from Stanford University in 1981, and became a docent in theoretical philosophy at Uppsala University in 1990. I have been a research fellow (forskarassistent) at Uppsala University (1986-1990), associate professor at the universities of Lund (1990-91) and Umeå (1991-99), and a research fellow at SCAS, the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study, 1996-97, 2007 and 2008-09. In 1999 I was appointed professor of theoretical philosophy at Umeå University. My main research interests are in philosophical logic, philosophy of language and philosophy of mathematics. Emeritus since 2013.
