I am an analytic philosopher working at the University of Bern, Switzerland.

My research interests lie at the intersection of metaphysics, philosophy of science and philosophy of mind. The main focus of my current research is on causation and causal models, but I also work on a rather broad range of topics, including the metaphysics of properties, the mind-body problem and the recent debate on mechanistic explanation in neuroscience.

I am also one of seven PIs in a DFG research unit on Inductive Metaphysics. My sub-project is on properties and causation. More information can be found here.
