Welcome to my website
I am cur­rently a Ph.D.-Can­di­date and "Wis­sen­schaft­licher Mit­ar­beiter" (Researcher) at the Pr­ofessor­ship for Prac­tical Phi­losophy at Saar­land Uni­versity in Ger­many. Be­fore taking this po­sition, I did my B.A. and M.A. in Phi­losophy and Soci­ology at RWTH Aachen Uni­ver­sity.
My cur­rent phi­lo­so­phi­cal re­search main­ly focu­sses on meta­ethics and re­lated areas and my dis­ser­tation is about moral dis­agree­ment. While there sure­ly are a lot of pres­sing dis­agreement-re­lated ques­tions, I am most­ly in­terested in the na­ture of moral dis­agre­ement it­self. The ques­tions I tac­kle in my dis­ser­tation in­clude: What is a moral dis­agree­ment? What are the ne­cessary and suf­ficient con­ditions that give rise to moral dis­agree­ment? Can the fact that some­one moral­ly dis­agrees with you be evi­dence that you are wrong? What meta­ethical the­ory best ex­plains the phe­nomenon of moral dis­agree­ment and its fea­tures?
My fur­ther phi­losophical in­terests par­ticularly in­clude (nor­mative) ethics, applied ethics, epis­temology, and phi­losophy of lan­guage. I also have a deep in­terest in the phi­losophy of D­avid Hume and its in­fluence on con­tempo­rary ana­lytic phi­losophy.
