I am a philosopher of mind and cognitive scientist with a special interest in interdisciplinary and empirically informed philosophy of action and sociality.
My main project focuses on the intersection between skills and habits, joint action and interaction, and normativity. The philosophical puzzle is this: how can we retain rationality as a normative criterion for individual and joint action, given all the facets and complexity of human behavior?

Fall 2021 I started as professor at the University of Antwerp. I am a member of the Center for Philosophical Psychology. From April 2019 until September 2021 I was an assistant professor at the department of philosophy at the University of Vienna, working with Prof. Hans Bernhard Schmid. Before that I worked as an assistant professor at the Philosophy Department II of Ruhr-University Bochum. I was associated to the Research Training Group on “Situated Cognition” at the Ruhr University Bochum and the Mercur Project “Automaticity in Thought and Action and its Significance for our Self-Understanding”. I studied philosophy at the Radboud University and the Albert-Ludwigs University Freiburg and social psychology at the Radboud University. I obtained my PhD at the Ruhr-University Bochum.
