(NOTE: I am currently on parental leave until March 2024 and might be delayed in answering your inquiries. Feel free to remind me, if I owe you an answer.)

I am a philosopher with a focus on the philosophy of mind at its intersections with neuroscience and engineering. My work focuses, e.g., 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 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. From March 2024 onward, I will work as the Director of Research at the Centre for Philosophy of AI Research {PAIR} at FAU Erlangen.

I like working collaboratively and 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 PSYTRANS (on psychedelic transformation) and COMPAIN (on the complexity of pains). 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. An associated DFG project, that develops this model further, supports this development toward sustainable open access.

I also contributed to the Youtube channel of the German Society for Analytic Philosophy (GAP), which I initiated in 2017 with the support of Thomas Grundmann and the GAP.
