My PhD project is part of the MCMP and the graduate school of systemic neurosciences (GSN) at LMU. At the MCMP, my supervisors are Stephan Hartmann and Ulrike Hahn. Previously, I obtained a B.A. in Philosophy & Economics at the university of Bayreuth and the M.A. in Logic & Philosophy of Science at the MCMP.
My PhD project focuses on reasoning and argumentation, in relation to collective decision making. To that end, I use formal modeling tools from Bayesian epistemology, decision theory, and information theory. Furthermore, I am interested in relating these formal models to empirical insights from neuroscience and psychology, in order to obtain a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of human reasoning and decision making, and their potential underlying causes.
Apart from that, I am interested in general philosophy of science, philosophy of economics, social choice theory, and logic.
