    Since February 2017 I am Assistant Professor in Continental Philosophy/Critical Cultural Theory at the University of Amsterdam.

    Before coming to Amsterdam, I held post-doc positions in Cologne and Oxford. I received my PhD (Dr. phil.) from the University of Cologne in 2014 (for a dissertation on the aesthetic experience of mobile music headphone listening) and my M.A. (Magister Artium) degree from Leipzig University in 2009.

    I am mostly concerned with philosophy of culture and aesthetics. Next to these areas of specialization, I count social and political philosophy as my further areas of competence (and I do not mind to occasionally trespass into the realm of sociological theory and method). I have mostly been working on aesthetic experience and the methodology of the philosophical study of culture. Recently, I have turned to the problems of mythical thought, the persisting cultural significance of metaphysics (and its equivalents), and finally the intricate notion of “barbarism”. In historical respect, I am usually focusing on late 19th and 20th century philosophy – with a particular interest in the long shadow German Idealism is casting on this age and its different, often opposing, philosophical currents.
