I am an analytic philosopher working at the University of Bern, Switzerland.

My research interests lie at the intersection of metaphysics, philosophy of science, and philosophy of mind. The main focus of my current research is on causation and causal models, but I am also interested in the metaphysics of properties, the mind-body problem, and the recent debate on ontological indeterminacy.

I am one of seven PIs in a DFG research unit on Inductive Metaphysics. My sub-project is on graded causation. More information can be found here.

My current collaborators at the University of Bern are Elisabeth Muchka (PhD student), Nicole Rathgeb (Postdoc), Matthias Rolffs (Postdoc), and Jonas Werner (Postdoc).

I am happy to supervise theses on topics in my areas of expertise.
