Short CV

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

I work in epistemology and philosophy of language. My main interests in epistemology are epistemic contextualism, relativism and invariantism. In philosophy of language, I work primarily on context-sensitivity and conversational implicatures. Further research interests include pragmatics (more generally), testimony, skepticism, experimental philosophy 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.

Here's a full CV.
