I’m an academic philosopher and trans activist.

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.

My academic work is located at the intersections of philosophy of mind, social psychology, and social epistemology.

I currently work on:

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