In 2016 I started my Ph.D. at the University of Basel. My interdiciplinary thesis deals with the role of photographic and filmic images for recognizing the moral value of animals. It is supervised by Markus Wild (Philosophy, Basel) and Sabine Nessel (Film Studies, Berlin). I am currently part of the eikones graduate school. In 2015 I completed my MA degree in Philosophy and German Language and Literature at the University of Freiburg. My studies included stays abroad in Glasgow and Buenos Aires. Besides my studies I worked as tutor, undergraduate research assistant and language teacher.
