Thank you for your interest in my philosophy work.
I am an assistant 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 epistemic authority, religious and worldview disagreement, the epistemological import of first-person narratives, and the role of interpersonal trust.
My research is sensitive to the ways in which implicit and explicit biases affect 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.
