I am a philosopher working mainly in ethics and political philosophy. My current research interests are family ethics, individual moral responsibility in collective contexts, ideal and nonideal theory, and feminist liberalism. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Zurich in 2014 and worked as a postdoc at the Universities of Graz (2015-2018) and Bern (2018-2022). I am going to take up a position as assistant professor at the University of Basel with my SNSF-funded research project „Just Parenthood: The Ethics and Politics of Childrearing in the 21st Century“ in spring 2023.

About

I grew up in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland, a small town on the French-German language border. When I started university, I first majored in political science, until I found philosophy in my mid-twenties and never looked back. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Zurich in 2014. As a postdoc, I moved to Graz, Austria and later back to Bern, Switzerland. I currently live here with my longterm partner (also a philosopher) and our son.

My native language is German and I speak English, French, Spanish, and some Italian.
