In 2014, I obtained a M.Sc. in Computer Science at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg. My thesis topic was the simulation of Robert Nozicks theory of state formation from the state of nature.
My main areas of interest are computer simulations as a tool in philosophy and problems of collective (ir-)rationality. With respect to computer simulation, I have a broad interest in methodological questions of validation, replication and model presentation. In the area of collective rationality, I am working on the evolution of unpopular norms and the related phenomenon of bullying.
