My name is Tamer Nawar. I am Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Groningen.
Before joining the Faculty of Philosophy in Groningen I was a postdoctoral research fellow in philosophy at the University of Oxford and before that I completed my PhD at the University of Cambridge.
My research interests are quite broad but include: ancient and medieval philosophy; metaphysics; epistemology; and philosophy of language and logic.
