I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at CONCEPT, University of Cologne. Before that I was an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy. My area of specialization is epistemology.

Currently I focus mostly on issues to do with reasoning or inference, such as: What normative constraints does logic put on human reasoning? What are the best scientific models of how humans reason, and what are their implications regarding human rationality? Is reasoning only a way of transmitting knowledge from premise-beliefs to conclusion-beliefs, or is it also a source of knowledge in its own right (and if so how)?

I am also interested in skeptical arguments, the nature and normativity of agnostic attitudes (suspended judgment), philosophy of logic and the theoretical foundations of cognitive science/AI. Besides being an academic, I also enjoy programming (I play around mostly with CLISP and Python), I skateboard and from time to time I compose electronic songs.
