Welcome

I am a philosopher working at the intersection of practical and theoretical philosophy. I am especially interested in how we can make philosophical methods and tools fruitful for practical problems – but also in what we can learn from such practical applications on a theoretical level.

My current research interests are in epistemology, particularly moral epistemology and social epistemology. I am also interested in the role of experts and expert knowledge vis-à-vis social and other values in a democratic society, which is something that I also explore outside of academia as a member of the swiss association Reatch.

In September 2018, I defended my dissertation Applying Reflective Equilibrium. A Case Study in Justification, in which I present the first explicit and detailed case study for an application of the method of reflective equilibrium, using it to develop and defend a precautionary principle.
