I’m an academic philosopher working interdisciplinarily at the intersections of philosophy of mind, social ontology, and social epistemology.

Currently, I’m a Postdoc/Lecturer at the University of Bayreuth (Germany) at the chair of epistemology. Previously, I was deputy professor for epistemology in Bayreuth. And before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Education Ludwigsburg, leading a sub-project on the impact of digitization on different social groups, particularly marginalized social groups.

My main research interests are scripts, social norms, social interaction, emotion, social media, and gender.

I finished my Ph.D. in philosophy at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain, Humboldt-Universit├Ąt zu Berlin, and Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin in 2019, under the supervision of Jan Slaby and Jesse Prinz. During my PhD, I spent several months at The Graduate Center, City University of New York.

You can find me and my work on PhilPapers, Academia, Researchgate, and Twitter.
