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 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).
