About

I am a junior professor for Theoretical Philosophy at the University of Hamburg. My research centers around decision theory, (formal) epistemology and philosophical logic.

I have recently started a project entitled “Knowledge and Decision” which looks at various issues at the intersection of epistemology and decision theory (for more, see here). It is funded by the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) as part of the Emmy-Noether program.

I also like conditionals, including counterfactuals. I am very much interested in better understanding their relation to conditional probabilities. For quite a while I have been revising my Phd thesis to turn it into a book manuscript. It just came out with OUP.

In terms of non-academic activities, I have started to kite-surf during holidays when I was in Spain, which I really enjoy once the fear is gone. The pictures you see in the header are from the latest trip to Egypt. I also like to cook (on and off working my way through Julia Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking”).
