Welcome to my website.

I am a philosopher working in applied ethics and bioethics, with a particular interest in animal ethics and medical ethics.

Since September 2019, I am based with a Swiss National Science Foundation PRIMA-Grant at the University of Basel (Switzerland) with my project Beastly Politics — A Theory of Justice for Nonhuman Animals. My research team involves two collaborators: PhD student Emnée van den Brandeler and postdoctoral researcher Dr. Dr. Matthias Eggel.

Currently, I am finishing a book on human and animal vulnerability and their moral implications (under contract with Palgrave Macmillan).

In June 2021, I co-organise with the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture FiBL a conference on the ethics of using and killing farm animals (in German).
