Short CV

I am principal investigator in the DFG research project The Semantics and Pragmatics of Knowledge Claims based at the Universit├Ąt Hamburg. Previously, I did my PhD at the Humboldt-Universit├Ąt zu Berlin.

I work in epistemology and philosophy of language. In epistemology, I work primarily on the semantics, pragmatics and psychology of knowledge ascriptions. Other interests include testimony, memory and skepticism. Most of my work in philosophy of language is on predicates of personal taste, but I also have more general interests in topics such as context-sensitivity, non-literal contents and assertion. I recently got interested in experimental philosophy and did some studies on knowledge ascriptions and predicates of personal taste.

I am also editor of the philpapers category Epistemic Contextualism and Invariantism and coordinator of the research network The Semantics and Metasemantics of Context-Sensitive Language. Together with Julia Zakkou, I run a little website, where we list work in experimental philosophy on the relativism-contextualism debate.
