I am Assistant Professor of Practical Philosophy at the University of Salzburg where I teach ethics, social, and political philosophy. In my research I focus on questions surrounding blame and responsibility and on questions surrounding the right to privacy. Beginning in October 2021 I will be PI of the (at least) 42-months research project “The Sense of Responsibility Worth Worrying About” funded by the Austrian Science Fund.

After studying Philosophy, Psychology, and German Language and Literature at the University of Freiburg and at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, I wrote my PhD thesis on moral blame at the Department of Philosophy at Humboldt-University Berlin. I spent a term at the University of Oxford in 2014. From February 2016 till September 2017, I was Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter (lecturer) at the University of Lübeck where I set up a philosophy program for non-philosophy students. Since October 2017 I teach at the University of Salzburg.
