Faculty of Cultural Studies
Chair of Epistemology

I am Professor of Epistemology at the University of Bayreuth since 2018. My philosophical interests concern various aspects of individuals’ minds (beliefs, rationality, self-knowledge, fragmentation, and implicit biases) as well as various aspects of interpersonal interaction (testimony, deference to first-person authority, epistemic injustice, and communication). I have published extensively in both areas. 

I was previously assistant professor at the University of Graz (2013-2017), postdoc at UCLA with Tyler Burge (2011-2013), and postdoc at UCL with Lucy O’Brien (2010). I wrote my PhD thesis at the University of Granada (2009) with the support of a Spanish National Grant (2005-2009), undertaking two short visits to Sussex University (with Sarah Sawyer and Murali Ramachandran) and UCLA (with Tyler Burge).
