Marchal, Bruno
Scientific career
Bruno Marchal was born in Köln (Germany) in 1955. From 1973 to 1977 he finished his Candidatures and Licences in the Mathematical Sciences at Brussels Free University (ULB). From 1977 till 1991 he has been teaching Mathematics at High School and Institutes. He has also worked for the private society PLANT GENETIC SYSTEMS (Ghent/Brussels). From 1991 till 1995 he worked at IRIDIA and wrote his PhD thesis. From 1995 to 97 he worked at the "Université de Lille" in France from which he earned a DEA in computer science. In 1998 he received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Université de Lille for his PhD thesis, entitled "Calculabilite, Physique et Cognition"", for which he has been awarded the french "Prix Le Monde de la Recherche Universitaire". He is currently working at IRIDIA in Brussels.

His main interest are the foundation of the physical sciences, the foundation of the cognitive science and the mind-body problem. His main known contributions consist in the discovery of the first person computationalist indeterminacy, the incompatibility of digital mechanism and weak forms of physicalism, and the empirical testability of computationalism (or digital mechanism).
