Education[edit]

Paris gained his doctorate under Robin Gandy at Manchester in 1969 with a dissertation entitled Large Cardinals and the Generalized Continuum Hypothesis.

Research[edit]

Paris known for his work on mathematical logic, in particular provability in arithmetic, uncertain reasoning and inductive logic with an emphasis on rationality and common sense principles.

Awards and honours[edit]

Paris was elected Fellow of the British Academy in 1999.[1][11]
