I am a faculty member at Leibniz Universität Hannover, where I have a five-year appointment as an assistant professor. Before coming to Hannover, I did my graduate work at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy at LMU Munich.

I work primarily in the philosophy of science, epistemology, decision theory, and the philosophy of action. Much of my research is on the epistemology of causation and its relation to practical rationality, moral and legal responsibility, and scientific explanation, but I also work a lot on topics in Bayesian epistemology (e.g., Bayesian updating and Bayesian treatments of conditionals).
