I am a postdoctoral research and teaching fellow at the department of Philosophy of the University of Twente and “Privatdozent” of Philosophy as well as an associated member of the Centre for Advanced Study in Bioethics at the University of Münster (Germany). My research mainly focuses on ethics and metaethics. Most recently, I have developed a project on normative and evaluative challenges of computer-mediated communication and interaction for the philosophy of love.
