​I am a post-doc ("Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter") in philosophy at LMU Munich, specializing in ethics. I recently completed my PhD in philosophy at the University of Oxford. Before coming to Oxford, I completed an MSc in Philosophy at the London School of Economics and a BA in Economics and Philosophy at the University of Bayreuth.

I sometimes contribute to public debates in ethics and public policy. See recent pieces in Süddeutsche Zeitung and Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung


I am an active member of the Social Democratic Party in Germany (SPD) and an advocate of a politically more integrated Europe. I am running as a candidate for the German Bundestag 2021.
