I am an Assistant Professor at CONCEPT, University of Cologne. Before that I was an Alexander von Humboldt fellow at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP). My area of specialization is epistemology, and my areas of competence include logic and philosophy of mind. I am interested in questions about reasoning in general, the epistemic role of imagination, and the a priori/a posteriori distinction. I also do research on philosophical logic and the philosophy of cognitive science/AI.

As of this moment, my research focuses on (i) imagination as a source of knowledge, (ii) the Carrollian regress of reasons in inference (as pictured in Lewis Carroll's 'What the Tortoise Said to Achilles') and (iii) normative principles of agnosticism (i.e. principles having to do with suspension of judgment). Besides being an academic, I also do some programming (I work mainly with CLISP and Python), I skateboard and from time to time I compose electronic songs.
