I'm an Assistant Professor of Philosophy (Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter) at the University of Siegen (Theoretical Philosophy), Germany, affiliated with the Kant Zentrum NRW (Kant and Cognitive Science). My main areas of interest are Kant's theoretical philosophy and Islamic philosophy and theology, especially the ʾAšʿarite  school and al-Ġazzālī, but I also have interests in philosophy of mind and cognitive science and epistemology.

In my spare time I mostly watch birds and read about them. Here you can find a story about my birding in Siegen. 

I am the editor of the Philpapers category al-Ġazālī, and you can also find me here and here
