Welcome

I am Juniorprofessor for Neurophilosophy at the philosophy department and am a member of the Center for Behavioral Brain Sciences at the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg. There, I teach at the Philosophy–Neurosciences–Cognition Program. My work focuses mainly on philosophical issues in the neuroscience of consciousness, specifically the neural correlates of consciousness, the limits of introspection, the structure of experiences, self and selflessness, indeterminate aspects of experiences, and so on. Beside this, I work on the philosophy of psychedelics, psychiatry, pains, paradoxes, vagueness, transformative experiences, and Darwinism.

Together with Wanja Wiese and Jennifer Windt, I am Editor-in-Chief of the independent, cost-free open access journal Philosophy and the Mind Sciences. I am currently a PI in the research training group Extrospection: External Acces to Higher Cognitive Processes. Until 2021, I contributed the majority of videos and interviews to the Youtube-channel of the German Society for Analytic Philosophy.
