Welcome to my website.

I am a philosopher working in the field of ethics in general, with a particular focus on applied ethics. I have, amongst other things, a strong interest in medical ethics, animal ethics and environmental ethics, as well as the interconnectedness of these fields (such as the ethics of One Health approaches).

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.

In August 2021, I was promoted to assistant professor in philosophy at Basel University (non-tenure track).

I am again co-organizing this year the Swiss Animal-Environmental Ethics Network Meeting at the University of Fribourg on 9.11.2023. More information can be found here.

My book The Moral Implications of Human and Animal Vulnerability’ was published in April 2023 with Palgrave Macmillan (open access) and can be downloaded here free of charge: https://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-3-031-25078-1
