Alexander W. Kocurek

I am an assistant professor in the Sage School of Philosophy at Cornell University. My main research interests are in philosophical logic, philosophy of language, metaphysics, and epistemology. My primary focus is on the logic and metaphysics of modality, counterfactuals, and identity, as well as the intersection of logic and metametaphysics, mereology, and temporal persistence.

In 2018, I earned my PhD in the Group in Logic and Methodology of Science at the University of California, Berkeley. My dissertation, titled What Can You Say? Measuring the Expressive Power of Languages, is an exploration the notion of expressive power in which I develop a systematic theory for comparing different measures of expressive power.

I also go by “Arc”.
