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 have since worked as a postdoc at the Universities of Graz (2015-2018) and Bern (2018-today).
