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.
