I am a researcher at the Institute for Futures Studies, Lecturer in Practical Philosophy at Bayreuth University, and fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. My main research interests lie in ethics and political philosophy. In ethics I am particularly interested in topics of normative ethics such as consequentialism, supererogation, and the principle that ‘ought’ implies ‘can’. In political philosophy I am currently working on the democratic representation of future persons and, in particular, on the boundary problem in democratic theory.
