I am a postdoctoral researcher at the DebateLab. Previously, I was an assistant professor at the University of Konstanz. My research focusses on logic and rationality, but I am interested in nearly all topics in philosophy. In my PhD thesis I discussed the semantic and metaphysical presuppositions of logic. My current project Dimensions of Doubt analyses the notion of suspension of belief.
