I am a Research Fellow in philosophy at the University of Bonn, working within the DFG project “Disagreement in Philosophy–Conceptual and Semantic Foundations”.

My research focuses primarily on two clusters of topics: (i) the normative aspects of enquiry, with a special emphasis on disagreement and retraction, and (ii) the debate about the nature of truth, particularly with respect to deflationism, relativism and pluralism.

Other research interests include the metaphysics and epistemology of aesthetics, topics in philosophy of logic and metaethics.

Since 2016 I am member and co-director of PRISMA—Global Research Network for Pluralism, Relativism and Contextualism.
