A Veni research grant has been awarded to Ronnie Hermens by the NWO (The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research) for his project: Did curiosity kill the cat?

Short summary:
Schrödinger discovered that, if we take quantum mechanics literally, cats can be alive and dead at the same time. Though a non-literal reading seems preferable, recent research indicates that such a reading is untenable. In this project the precise implications of that research are investigated.

Ronnie Hermens successfully defended his PhD thesis Philosophy of quantum probability, supervised by Jan-Willem Romeijn, on 25 January 2016.
