I am an Assistant Professor (wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter) of Theoretical Philosophy at the Department of Philosophy of the University of Oldenburg. My academic career started with the study of philosophy and classical philology at the University of Heidelberg (Magister Artium, highest honors, 1998), supported by a scholarship for intellectual excellence from Cusanuswerk, a German academic foundation. This was followed by positions as Lecturer of Classics at the University of Heidelberg (1998–2000), grant-holder from the German Graduate Research Grants Program (2000–2002), Lecturer in Theoretical Philosophy at the University of Halle-Wittenberg (2003–2007), Visiting Scholar at the University of Notre Dame (2006), and Research Fellow of the Swiss National Science Foundation at the University of Lucerne (2007–2010). My doctorate (summa cum laude) was on ultimate epistemological foundations; the PhD thesis was awarded the dissertation prize of the University of Halle-Wittenberg (2012). I then worked as Assistant Professor (2012–2015) and as Locum Professor of Philosophy and Acting Chair (2015–2016) at the University of Lucerne. I then taught and researched at the Chair of Logic of the University of Bonn and at the Department of Philosophy of the University of Cologne (2017–2018).
