Welcome

I am a philosopher working at the intersection of theoretical and practical 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 social epistemology. For example, I am 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.

My book, Applying Reflective Equilibrium. Towards the Justification of a Precautionary Principle, is currently forthcoming from Springer. It presents 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.
