About me

I’m a postdoctoral researcher at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain in the Institute of Philosophy at Humboldt University and in the interdisciplinary DFG Excellence cluster Science of Intelligence at Technical University Berlin. I work at the intersection of philosophy of cognitive science, philosophy of mind and epistemology. I am specifically interested in learning, reasoning, and rationality.

Some questions I ask in my current research are: What does it require to learn concepts from perception and reason rationally with them? How can one explain this with Bayesian models of cognition, and how good are such explanations? Can and should we capture all aspects of intelligence in terms of the ability to make successful predictions about the world?

Before coming to Berlin, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Situated Cognition Group at Ruhr University Bochum. I completed my PhD in Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh, and I received my MSc in Cognitive Science and a BA in Philosophy and Social Science from Ruhr University Bochum. During my previous studies, I have been a visiting researcher at the Department of Philosophy (KGW) in Salzburg and in the Emmy Noether Research Group “From Perception To Belief and Back Again” in Bochum.
