Chair of Philosophy II

Since the fall of 2018 I am a postdoc in Bayreuth. I obtained my MA in Political Science from Leiden University (2000) and my PhD in Ethics from Utrecht University (2011). Before and during my PhD research, I was a lecturer and researcher at various universities in the Netherlands. After that, I was a lecturer at the Centre for Human Bioethics at Monash University, Australia. Since 2013, I was (and I still am) a postdoc at various German universities (in particular Saarland, Mannheim and Frankfurt).


My main research interests are in ethics, in particular consequentialism. I’m also interested in various fields of applied ethics, such as population ethics, animal ethics, environmental ethics and medical ethics. I am also interested in value theory, in particular, accounts of welfare and accounts of the value of existence and the harm of death.


For my current and past courses, please see the P&E intranet.
