Short CV

I am a fixed-term lecturer ("Akademischer Rat auf Zeit") at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg. Before, I was principal investigator in the DFG research project The Semantics and Pragmatics of Knowledge Claims based at the Universität Hamburg. I did my PhD at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

I work primarily in epistemology and philosophy of language. In epistemology, I work on the semantics, pragmatics and psychology of knowledge ascriptions. Other interests include testimony, memory, skepticism and pragmatic encroachment. Most of my work in philosophy of language focuses on subjective discourse, branching out into more foundational fields such as context-sensitivity, implicature, non-literality and speech acts. I recently got interested in experimental philosophy and did some studies on knowledge ascriptions and predicates of personal taste. In the future, I want to work more on beliefs, credences and their relation to action.

I am also editor of the PhilPapers category Epistemic Contextualism and Invariantism and coordinator of the research network The Semantics and Metasemantics of Context-Sensitive Language.
