I am an assistant professor ('wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter') in philosophy at the University of Duisburg-Essen, and a member of the Philosophical Anthropology and Ethics Research Group. I currently work on the nature, value, and normative significance of various attitudes, in particular the emotions.
I completed a PhD in philosophy at the University of Manchester, under the supervision of Peter Goldie and Michael Scott.
In 2016-2018, I was a visiting assistant professor in philosophy at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
In 2014-2016, I was a postdoctoral fellow in philosophy at the University of Montreal and the Centre for Research in Ethics in Montreal, and a member of the GRIN research group.
In 2013-2014, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences and the University of Geneva. Since 2014,
I have been an associate member of the THUMOS research group in Geneva.
