I'm a postdoctoral researcher at KIT's Institute of Philosophy. I'm working mostly in moral and political philosophy. My current project is on the ethics of state mass surveillance. Other research interests of mine include the relationship between empirical moral psychology and moral philosophy, toleration and punishment.

I will 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, 2019).
