About me

I am an Assistant Professor (Juniorprofessorin) for Theoretical Philosophy in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Konstanz (Germany) and a Research Fellow at the Zukunftskolleg.

My main areas of research are in philosophy of mathematics, logic and epistemology and I also teach in metaphysics and philosophy of science. I have worked on the topic of naturalism in philosophy of mathematics, explanatoriness in mathematics, inconsistent believes in the mathematical community and questions of defectiveness of formal concepts. Additionally to my work in philosophy, I also hold a PhD in mathematics from the Kurt-Gödel-Research-Center for Mathematical Logic (University of Vienna).

In the last years, I have been leading a research group in my Freigeist-Project “Forcing: Conceptual Change in the Foundations of Mathematics” (2018-2024) that is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation. Here, I study the change set theory went through after the discovery of the forcing technique. This technique is the primary tool for investigating independence phenomena in mathematics. In the project I bring together aspects from logic and epistemology to study the practice of set theory as well as the related debates in the philosophy of set theory.
