I am a doctoral student at the University of St Andrews, jointly supervised by Theron Pummer (Philosophy) and Miguel Costa-Gomes (Economics) funded by the SASP studentship. My Ph.D. thesis is titled 'Moral Decision-Making: Essays from Philosophy and Economics.' I am also a Global Priorities Fellow 2021-22 at the Forethought Foundation and a 2021-22 Oskar Morgenstern Fellow at the Mercatus Center.
Prior to starting my Ph.D., I completed the M.Litt. in Moral, Political, and Legal Philosophy at St Andrews. Before that, I concurrently completed two B.A. degrees in Philosophy and Philology as well as a Mag.phil. teaching degree in Psychology, Philosophy, and German at the University of Graz. I visited Princeton's University Center for Human Values in fall 2018 and will be visiting Oxford's Global Priorities Institute in summer 2021.
In my doctoral research, I broadly work on the topics of moral decision-making from both philosophy and economics based approaches, mostly employing the experimental method.
My research is inter- and multidisciplinary and focuses in large part on Effective Altruism and global priorities research, stretching from philosophy (political theory - esp. Locke, research ethics, experimental philosophy, social epistemology, philosophy of science, methods) to economics (charitable giving, moral hazards in climate change communication) and psychology (dark triad traits, psychology of COVID).
