I am currently on parental leave until March 2024. I apologise if I am delayed in answering your emails during that time. Feel free to remind me, if I owe you an answer to one of your inquiries.
I am a philosopher with a focus on the philosophy of mind at its intersections with neuroscience and engineering. My work focuses, for example, on philosophical issues in the neuroscience of consciousness, neural correlates of consciousness, the limits of introspection, the structure of experiences, the philosophy of psychedelics, and epistemic risks of interacting with and in engineered environments. My google scholar page is here; most of my work can be found online as open access.
At the moment, I work as the Juniorprofessor for Neurophilosophy at the philosophy department at the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, where I am also a member of the Center for Behavioral Brain Sciences.
I like working collaboratively and invested in setting up research networks. Currently, I am a principal investigator on the BMBF/DLR-funded project „PsychedELSI: Ethische, legale und soziale Implikationen der Neuropsychopharmakologie in der Psychotherapie – Vorbereitung auf die psychedelische Renaissance“. In 2024, I will be a PI on the EU ERANET project on psychedelic transformation PSYTRANS and the COMPAIN project on the complexity of pains, which are European-Taiwanese collaborations. I am also a PI on the DFG-AHRC-Project SENSOR on the philosophy of sensory engineering. Between 2019 and 2023, I was a PI in the research training group Extrospection: External Acces to Higher Cognitive Processes.
Together with Wanja Wiese and Jennifer Windt, I am Editor-in-Chief (and co-founder) of the independent, cost-free open-access journal Philosophy and the Mind Sciences, where we aim to provide a sustainable alternative to for-profit publishing. Supporting this development towards sustainable open access is an associated DFG project that develops this model further.
