Max Kölbel took up his present position as ICREA Research Professor at Universitat de Barcelona in 2008, but his collaboration with LOGOS stretches back further. His main interests are in philosophy of language, metaphysics, epistemology and metaethics. Max has recently led international collaborative research projects on "Semantic Content and Conversational Dynamics" as well as "Semantic Content and Context Dependence". He was also involved centrally in the PERSP project. Currently, he is jointly responsible with Josep Macià for a new research project on "Foundations and Methods of Natural Language Semantics". He participates in the European DIAPHORA Training Network. He is also engaged in a long-term research project on objectivity in thought and language.

Max got his PhD in Philosophy from King's College, University of London (UK), in 1997. He has worked at the Instituto de Investigaciones Filosóficas of the UNAM in México City, at the University of Wales Swansea, in the Philosophy Faculty at Cambridge University (UK) and in the Philosophy Department at the University of Birmingham (UK). He has recently held visiting positions at the Mercator Research Group, Bochum University, and the Philosophy Department, University of Hamburg.
