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 Konstanz, the ILLC in Amsterdam, the Humboldt University in Berlin, the MIT in Cambridge (MA), and Concept Lab at the University of Oslo.
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 especially interested in normatively loaded expressions (like expressives, pejoratives, and thick terms) and, more generally, in questions at the semantics/pragmatics interface.
