I’m a PhD student in Political Theory at Goethe-University Frankfurt, supervised by Darrel Moellendorf and Rainer Forst. My research is funded with a scholarship by the Heinrich Boell Foundation. I hold a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Hamburg and a M.A. in Political Theory from the Goethe-University Frankfurt and the Technical University Darmstadt. During that time, I have been a Visiting Student at the University of Southampton.

My research interests include theories of global justice, responsibility, and power in general, and climate as well as intergenerational justice in particular. In my PhD project, I explore and motivate a structural injustice approach to climate change based on the writings of Iris Marion Young. Centrally, I aim to explicate how we can make sense of both individual and institutional responsibility for climate change as a structural injustice and understand our responsibilities to non-overlapping future generations.

Outside academia, I have recently published articles in magazines focusing on civic education in Germany, including an article on responsibility for climate mitigation and another one as a general introduction to intergenerational justice.
