My area of specialization is in the Philosophy of Mind, with important connections to Philosophy of Psychology, Theories of Rationality, Normative Epistemology, and Ethics.

I earned a BA in Philosophy and Sociology and an MA in Philosophy and Educational Sciences (summa cum laude) at the University of Basel, Switzerland, while spending one semester each at the University of Chicago and the University of Missouri St. Louis as a visiting student.

Since 2013 I am a PhD student at Columbia University.

For the academic year 2017/18 I received a grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation for a full year of funding to be a visiting student at Yale University.
