I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in Philosophy at the Vrije Universiteit (VU) Amsterdam. My advisor is Jan Willem Wieland.

I work at the intersection of practical rationality and political philosophy. I am also interested in ethics and, more generally, anything that crosses my philosophical desk.

Previously, I was a PhD student in Philosophy at Erasmus University Rotterdam and the Erasmus University Institute for Philosophy and Economics (EIPE) under the supervision of Constanze Binder and Conrad Heillman. My thesis "On Having, and Making, Choices" is currently under examination.

Before my PhD, I obtained a Research Master at EIPE, an Msc in Philosophy of the Social Sciences at the London School of Economics, and a Bsc in Economics at Bocconi University.
