Personal profile

Research interests

I am a philosopher of mind and cognition with expertise in empirically informed research on enculturation, situated cognition, and predictive processing. My research interests include narrative practices, literacy, sense of self, mental disorders, grief, mind-wandering, and mathematical cognition.

I am currently working on my project Living to tell, telling to live: Experience, narrative, and the self, funded by an ARC DECRA. In this project, I explore the relationship between lived embodied experience and self-narrative. I integrate research in philosophy of mind and cognition, the empirical cognitive sciences, and cognitive narratology.


I have joined the Department of Philosophy at Macquarie University in 2021. Previously, I worked in the Department of Philosophy II at Ruhr University Bochum, Germany (7/2018-8/2021). Before moving to Bochum, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Psychology at Justus Liebig University of Giessen, Germany (04/2016-06/2018).

I received my PhD in philosophy (summa cum laude) at Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz in July 2015. My dissertation, supervised by Thomas Metzinger and Richard Menary, was awarded the Barbara Wengeler Prize 2016.
