about

I am a PhD student in Political Theory at the Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Warwick. I’m writing my thesis on ‚Democracy, Justice and the Long-term: Designing Institutions for the Future.‘ My thesis aims to combine insights from democratic theory, intergenerational justice, and theories of risk and institutions to the question of how democracies should be reformed in order to overcome ‘harmful’ short-termism. I am supervised by Simon Caney and Keith Hyams.
I’m teaching political theory and sustainability at Witten/Herdecke University (Germany). I studied Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (BA) at Witten/Herdecke University and Political Theory Research (MSc) at the University of Oxford. I am an ambassador of the Foundation for the Rights of Future Generations, Stuttgart, Germany. I am also a co-founder of LauterBlumen a small cooperative producing organic/fair t-shirts with a positive message.
