I am a lecturer (“wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter”) in philosophy at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) with a focus on theoretical philosophy, and philosophy of language in particular. In February 2018, I defended my dissertation on linguistic vagueness (and the associated paradox of the heap).

I obtained a bachelor’s degree in German studies (major) and philosophy (minor) from Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf in 2008 and a master’s degree in philosophy (major) and linguistics (minor) from Stuttgart University in 2011.

While a PhD student, I spent four months as a visiting researcher at the University of Toronto (supervised by Diana Raffman). I worked as a lecturer at Bielefeld University from April 2016 to March 2017, and at Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg from April 2017 to August 2018. My full CV is to be found here.

You can find a list of publications here, and here is a list of the courses I have taught so far. A collection of various teaching materials is in its early stages.

I also enjoy writing poems from time to time — mostly, but not exclusively, in German. Here are some results of my (not too serious) lyrical ambitions. One of my favorite recreational activities is hiking. After all, the Black Forest is just around the corner… Click here for the routes of some hikes in and around the Black Forest: tried, tested, and approved 🙂
