With a background in mathematics and philosophy, Bart Jacobs is making an important contribution to quantum logic, type theory and programming languages. He is renowned for the elegance of his theories and models. In addition to his academic work, Jacobs is also socially engaged.

Jacobs has specifically emphasised the ethical and legal aspects of his technological work in recent years.
