My Master’s Degree in Philosophy is from the University of Bonn (Germany), and my Doctoral Degree in Philosophy from the University of Cologne (Germany). During my graduate studies, I have spent a year as a Visitor at the Philosophy Program, RSSS, The Australian National University. After working one year as a Lecturer and Visiting Researcher at the Philosophy Department of the University of California at Davis, and 6 months as a DAAD-funded Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Australian National University, Brendan Balcerak Jackson and I received a generous grant from the German Research Council (DFG) to build a research group on “Understanding and the A Priori”. Between 2009 and 2013 our research group was hosted at the University of Cologne. From June 2013 on it will be based at the University of Konstanz. I am a Research Fellow and the Co-Director of this group. From June 2013 on I will also be a Research Fellow at the Zukunftskolleg of the University of Konstanz with a project on “Imagination and Reasoning”.
