I’m an academic philosopher working interdisciplinary on (critical) philosophy of mind, social epistemology, and trans philosophy.

Currently, I’m a Postdoc in Philosophy at the University of Education Ludwigsburg (Germany) working in an interdisciplinary project on digital transformation. My research within the project looks specifically at online discrimination of LGBTQ+ people.

I finished my Ph.D. in philosophy at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Freie Universität Berlin in March 2019. In my dissertation, I developed a new approach to social interaction, one that is based on scripts and refers to social norms.

I currently work on:

  • scripts in social interaction and social cognition
  • social construction of emotions (together with Jesse Prinz)
  • (online) discrimination of LGBTIQ+ people
