Before arriving in Hamburg, I was a recipient of an Analysis Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, which I held at the University of Cambridge, where I also completed my PhD and MPhil. Before my time at Cambridge, I was a student at the Humboldt University of Berlin.


My research interests lie in the philosophy of language, philosophical logic, metaphysics and early analytic philosophy (in no particular order). My PhD thesis is concerned with Fregean ideas concerning language, in particular belief ascriptions and indexicality. My future research will focus on (Neo)-Fregean approaches to existence questions and investigate whether they make ontology easy, as argued in recent work by Amie Thomasson.
