I am a post-doctoral researcher (wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter) at the Institute of Philosophy of the University of Hamburg, affiliated to Benjamin Schnieder’s Phlox-Group. IMG_0563 I mainly work on grounding and non-causal explanation. In addition to that, I have a strong interest in the history and philosophy of logic, in particular in the work of Bernard Bolzano. Before joining the Institute of Philosophy in Hamburg, I held a post-doctoral scholarship at the KNU-Hamburg. Earlier, I worked as Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter of Thomas Spitzley at the Institute of Philosophy of the University of Duisburg-Essen (2013-2014). From 2009 to 2013 I was a PhD-researcher at the VU University Amsterdam as part of the ERC-Project “Tarski’s Revolution: A New History”, led by Arianna Betti. I obtained the PhD with a thesis on Bolzano’s theory of grounding (contact me, if you want to read it). During my PhD-Studies I spent some time at UC Berkeley under the supervision of Paolo Mancosu. My undergraduate studies were at the University of Duisburg-Essen, where I obtained a Magister Artium in Philosophy and Communication Sciences in 2008.
