I am a philosopher at Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg with a focus on theoretical philosophy, and philosophy of language in particular. Recently, I have 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), and I worked as a research associate at Bielefeld University from April 2016 to March 2017. My full CV is to be found here.
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.
