Research Interests

My systematic research interests are mainly focused on the philosophy of mind and language. I am especially interested in the theory of consciousness and self-consciousness and closely related issues like indexicality, non-conceptual content or the epistemology of I-thoughts. From a historical point of view, I am non-dogmatically interested in all systematic relevant positions.
