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. 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 (January and February 2023), I am a visiting researcher at the Law and Philosophy Group at the University Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona (Spain).
My book ‘The Moral Implications of Human and Animal Vulnerability’ is currently in press and will be published in May 2023 with Palgrave Macmillan (open access).
