Fellow of the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes , PhD Students


I am currently doing a PhD in Philosophy under the supervision of Bart van Kerkhove funded by the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes (German Academic Scholarship Foundation) with additional ideal support by the Claussen-Simon-Stiftung. This project started in Hamburg and is augmented through a stay at the ETH Zurich, digital visits of the Institute for Basic Science (KOR) and the VaViM Project.

I studied philosophy (MA 2016, BA 2012) and mathematics (MSc 2019, BSc 2015) at the University of Hamburg focusing on philosophy of science | mathematics, logic and discrete mathematics. These studies were augmented through stays at the Institute for Logic Language and Computation of the Universiteit van Amsterdam, the Universitat de Barcelona and a term as a visiting student researcher at the University of California Berkeley and a research internship at the University of British Columbia.

My main areas of interests are (general) Philosophy of Science (Science and Society and Values in Science) and Mathematics from all perspectives: I am working in Philosophy of Mathematics (esp. Philosophy of Mathematical Practice), think about Mathematics from a linguistic perspective, work in Mathematics Didactics, i.e. promoting mathematically gifted youth and I like doing mathematics when I have some spare time (esp. to think about (infinite) extremal combinatorics).
