(B.A., Freie Universität Berlin, 2016). Hi, I’m interested in philosophy.

I mostly work on decision theory and formal epistemology. At the moment, I am working on a project on Bayesian decision theory for non-ideal agents.

In addition, I am interested in ethics and social choice theory. I also like to think about Goodman’s ‘New Riddle of Induction’.

You can also find me here: Website, PhilPeople.

I’m a Global Priorities Fellow at the Forethought Foundation.
