My research focuses on philosophy of mind (especially perception) and the philosophy of Immanuel Kant. I am also interested in philosophy of language and clinical linguistics.
I am from Unna, a city in the Ruhr Valley in Germany, close to Dortmund and Cologne. Before coming to the US, I studied German, Linguistics, Philosophy, and Psychology at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität in Münster. My M.A. thesis explored the influence of a word class (adjectives) on aphasic symptoms. In 2002, I moved to Baltimore to study Philosophy in the Ph.D. program at Johns Hopkins University. My dissertation deals with the philosophy of perception and is called "What Non-conceptual Content Should Be." I moved to Greensboro in 2007.
