I have been Professor of Ethics at the University of Bayreuth since March 2023. Previously, I was an Associate Professor at the Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method at the London School of Economics.  I am also an External Member of the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy, and remain a Visiting Professor at LSE.

I work on ethics, philosophy of public policy, decision theory and economic methodology. For a glimpse of my work, you can watch this video, read this interview or this one, or check out some of my popular writing:
