I am a philosopher at the University of Duisburg-Essen. Prior to taking up this postition, I worked at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin as a member of the phlox research group, of which I remain an associate member. Even before that, I studied philosophy, psychology, and linguistics at the University of Hamburg, followed by one year as a research student at the University of Oxford. I have done most of my work in the philosophy of language (in particular on so-called truth-conditional semantics), with a little work in metaphysics and the philosophy of logic. You can find my full CV by clicking Work above and scrolling to the end of the page. Lately, I have developed an interest in social ontology and in particular in the concept of social construction. I have also started working on the semantics of generics. If I still had the time, I would enjoy operating the mixing desk of a dub sound system.
