I am an interdisciplinary researcher wor-king at the intersection of philosophy, political science and economics. My main interests are in collective decision making, agent-based modeling, political philosophy and rational choice theory. I received my PhD from Bamberg University in late 2017 and started working as a postdoctoral re-searcher at the Munich Center for Mathe-matical Philosophy thereafter.
