Welcome to my website.
I am a philosopher working in applied ethics and bioethics, with a particular 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. My research team currently involves two collaborators: PhD student Emnée van den Brandeler and postdoctoral researcher Dr. Dr. Matthias Eggel.
In August 2021, I was promoted to assistant professor in philosophy at Basel University (non-tenure track).
Currently, I am finishing a book on human and animal vulnerability and their moral implications (under contract with Palgrave Macmillan).
On the 3rd of November 2022, I co-organize the 1st Swiss Animal-Environmental Ethics Network Meeting at the University of Fribourg. Abstract submission is now possible here!
