As a philosopher, I’ve spend the last ten years of my academic career analyzing how climate change denial affects science, education, and our societies’ abilities to react to climate change in an appropriate way. It’s ironic that I sometimes have to fly to conferences; I feel urged to do this as I’m not yet tenured. I try to avoid it as often as possible, though.
After I had obtained my PhD in philosophy from Bielefeld University in 2012, I’ve worked at the universities of Bielefeld, Karlsruhe, and Hannover as a postdoc in philosophy of science. My research focuses on the role of moral and political values in science and, more specifically, on the epistemological and societal conditions of climate science.
