Since 2015, I am a temporary Associate Professor of Philosophy at Bielefeld University. I have previously been an Assistant Professor at the University of Hamburg and a visiting scholar at the University of Arizona in Tucson. I earned my Habilitation in philosophy from the University of Hamburg in 2015 and my Ph.D. from the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich in 2008. Munich is also where I was born and raised.
I mainly work in political philosophy. I have written on compromises, peace and modus vivendi, public justification, libertarianism, private property, political authority and legitimacy, and republican vs. negative conceptions of freedom. My recent book is called Compromise, Peace and Public Justification: Political Morality beyond Justice (Palgrave Macmillan 2016).
