I am a philosopher of action and cognitive scientist with a special interest in interdisciplinary and empirically informed social philosophy.
In April 2019, I started working as an assistant professor at the department of philosophy at the University of Vienna, working with Prof. Hans Bernhard Schmid. I am 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”. Before that I worked as an assistant professor at the Philosophy Department II of Ruhr-University Bochum. 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.
My current 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 the indicated complexity of human behavior?
