I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Scientific Reasoning and Argumentation Project at the Center for Advanced Studies, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. I am affiliated with Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy.
I obtained my PhD in Philosophy in 2015 from the University of Groningen, where I worked under the supervision of Igor Douven. My doctoral thesis is titled Between "If" and "Then:" Towards an Empirically Informed Philosphy of Conditionals.
My research interests include semantics and pragmatics of conditionals, their role in reasoning and decision making, various issues related to semantics-pragmatics interface, and philosophy of psychology of reasoning.
