Further Information

I am a doctoral fellow at the MCMP under the supervision of Stephan Hartmann and Alexander Reutlinger. Before that, I completed a BA in Philosophy and Economics at the University of Bayreuth and then the MA program in Logic and Philosophy of Science at the MCMP.


I am interested socio-epistemic processes such as the spread of beliefs, communication and collective decision-making. My PhD project analyses how worrisome social phenomena at the collective level (e.g. belief polarization or echo chambers) can emerge through deliberation among (boundedly) rational agents. To this end, I often work with agent-based simulations, while using tools from Bayesian epistemology and social choice theory.

I am also interested in the general philosophy of science, decision theory and game theory.
