Welcome to my site!
In April 2017 I joined the Department of Philosophy at the University of Bayreuth as an Akademischer Rat. Before that I worked as a Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter at the Humboldt University of Berlin (2016–2017) and at the University of Mannheim (2014–2016). Prior to coming to Mannheim I worked at the University of Konstanz (2011–2014) and spent the academic year 2011/2012 at the University of Oxford with Krister Bykvist as my adviser.
In April 2014 I completed my doctoral studies at Saarland University under the supervision of Christoph Fehige and Attila Tanyi and with Roger Crisp as external reviewer. My dissertation examines the ethical theory of consequentialism. It has been awarded the Wolfgang-Stegmüller-Preis of the German Society for Analytic Philosophy (GAP). I have previous degrees in philosophy (Magister Artium) from the University of Bielefeld and in law (first state examination).
My main research interests lie in ethics and political philosophy. In ethics I am particularly interested in topics of normative ethics such as consequentialism, contractualism, supererogation, and the principle that ‘ought’ implies ‘can’. In political philosophy I am currently working on the democratic representation of future persons and, in this context, on the boundary problem in democratic theory as well as on the non-identity problem in population ethics.
