Thank you for your interest in my philosophy work.
I am a professor of philosophy at the Department of Christian Philosophy, University of Innsbruck.
One major focus of my research is epistemology and its applications in social settings. Central topics include partiality in beliefs, epistemic authority, religious and worldview disagreement, and the epistemic import of trust and first-person narratives.
My research is sensitive to the psychological and moral-psychological aspects of human reasoning, and to the relevance of our social location on the way we think.
Another focus of my research is to apply the tools of philosophy to medicine and medical information science, with an eye toward improving the ways in which medical information systems and databases enable anonymized patient data to be shared and used.
