I did my Ph.D. in History and Philosophy of Science at the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität, Heidelberg (awarded in 2015) under the supervision of Peter McLaughlin and David Sepkoski (MPIWG). After a predoctoral fellowship at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science and a postdoctoral position at PAN - Perspectives on Nature, Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, I am now teaching philosophy and history of science at the Technical University of Darmstadt, where I am writing my Habilitation on the history and philosophy of 20th-century evolutionary morphology.

My research focuses on the history and philosophy of biology in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. I'm particularly interested in the conceptual and institutional history of evolutionary morphology and paleontology as well as in the history and philosophy of technoscience (see my research interest, publications, and ongoing activities).
