I am an Assistant Professor at the Institute of Philosophy at the University of Graz. Previously, I worked in Benjamin Schnieder's Nominalizations project at the University of Hamburg, Matti Eklund's Varieties of Normativity project at Uppsala University, and at the University of Zurich. I also spent time at the University of Constance, the ILLC in Amsterdam, the Humboldt University in Berlin, the MIT in Cambridge (MA), and Concept Lab at the University of Oslo. Currently, I am on research leave at Uppsala University (until December 2018).
I mainly work on questions at the intersection of philosophy of language and linguistics. In my PhD thesis, which received the Wolfgang-Stegmüller award in 2015, I dealt with the ontological commitments of our talk about numbers. Currently, I am interested in conventional implicatures (and related linguistic phenomena such as pejoratives and expressives) and, more generally, in questions at the semantics/pragmatics interface.
