I have an upcoming talk at the Stanley Cavell: A Retrospective conference at San Raffaele University in Milan.

Eugen Fischer and I have received funds from the Fritz Thyssen Stiftung for a conference on "Philosophy's Experimental Turn and the Challenge from Ordinary Language", to be held in Berlin in summer 2022.

A paper I co-authored on the ordinary concept of pain has been published in the Review of Philosophy and Psychology.

I won "Supervisor of the Year" for the UROP Project "New Methods in Online Experimental Philosophy of Language".
