About Me

I am a philosopher at the Freie Universität Berlin. I did my PhD at the CUNY Graduate Center, MA at the University of Vienna, and BA at the University of British Columbia, all in philosophy.

My philosophical interests include philosophy of action, ethics, social and political philosophy, philosophy of social science, and experimental philosophy. Right now, I'm working on a view of collective action based on the idea that when people form a collective intention, they mess with each other’s minds in an obligation-generating way.

Published papers and a brief description of my current and future research are available on the research page. A list of courses taught and a description of my other pedagogical activities are available on the teaching page. My CV and email address are here.
