My academic background is in Political Theory and the History of Political Thought. I'm mostly interested in those areas of the disciplines, which touch with literary criticism and language philosophy. Hence, I focus in my PhD on theories of interpretation and textuality, as well as the possibilities of using literature in Political Theory. I have done research about, amongst others, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Jacques Derrida, Martin Heidegger, and Friedrich Dürrenmatt.
Before starting my PhD in Aberdeen, I have studied in Germany and the UK, namely in Frankfurt, Darmstadt, Passau, and Exeter.
