After studies in philosophy, history, and political science at the University of Göttingen and the University of California at San Diego (UCSD), I obtained my PhD in 2007 from Marburg University.

I am also a member of the CEHIC (UAB), the LOGOS group (UB), the Kant-edition at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences, and Associate Research Fellow at the Wundt Center for Philosophy & History of Psychology, Universidade Federal Juiz de Fora (Brazil). In 2019, I was elected member of the Academia Europea; in November 2019, and became Head of the Kantian Rationality Lab at the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University, Kaliningrad.
