Welcome to my homepage. I am a doctoral researcher at the University of Oldenburg and a research associate at the research group »Need-Based Justice and Distribution Procedures« (FOR 2104) of the German Research Foundation (DFG), where I am concerned with questions of distributive justice between normative theory and empirical social research, focussing especially on need-based distributive justice.

I completed my bachelor’s degree in Politics, Economics, and Philosophy in the winter term 2013/2014 with a thesis on Friedrich Nietzsche’s problematisation of language and truth in his writing On Truth and Lie in an Extra-Moral Sense, supervised by Johann Kreuzer and Ingo Elbe. The master’s degree in Philosophy followed in the winter term 2016/2017 with a thesis on monotonicity and sensitivity as desiderata for measures of need-based distributive justice, supervised by Mark Siebel and Arne Robert Weiß.

Areas of Specialisation: Experimental Philosophy, Need-Based Distributive Justice
