I'm an assistant professor at Eva Schmidt's chair in theoretical philosophy at the Technical University Dortmund. Thanks to funding from the Fritz Thyssen Foundation, I was a visiting researcher at Kristina Liefke's chair at Bochum from April to September 2022.
My research focuses on the relation between knowledge and belief and whether either of them enjoys "priority" over the other. I also work on the semantics of knowledge and belief talk as well as the early 20th century philosophical movement commonly known as Oxford Realism. I especially enjoy teaching logic and the philosophy of language.
I completed my PhD at the University of Warwick in January 2020. During my PhD, I also spent time at Oxford, Toronto, and Cologne.
I'm originally from Austria, but lived in the UK for most of my adult life.
