I’m a philosopher working at the linguistics department at the University of Konstanz. My philosophical project applies Millikan’s teleosemantics to the study of natural languages. As a linguist I work as part of this group, studying the formal semantics and pragmatics of conditionals. I also work with developmental psychologists Josef Perner and Eva Rafetseder on the development of reasoning and representation.

For fun in the winter I like to go skiing and for summer fun I play ultimate frisbee. My remaining free time is mostly spent dealing with my collection of soul 45s and rap 12"s.
