I'm a postdoctoral researcher here at the Institute of Philosophy at the KIT. I working primarily in moral and political philosophy. One of my research interests has been the relationship between empirical moral psychology and moral philosophy (especially so-called debunking arguments). Another focus of my research has been toleration.
I'm now working on a new project on the ethics of state mass surveillance.
A workshop on this topic is taking place in April 2019. Check out the Call-for-Papers here (deadline: January 31st 2009).
I will also serve as guest editor for a special issue of 'Moral Philosophy and Politics' on the Ethics of State Mass Surveillance. Check out the Call-for-Papers here (deadline: June 30th, 2009)
