After completing my PhD in Philosophy at the Goethe-University in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, I am now Senior Assistant at the Department of Philosophy at the University of Basel, Switzerland.
Besides philosophy my main interest is literature, especially American Literature, which I studied alongside philosophy. My favorite authors are: Herman Melville, William Faulkner, H.P. Lovecraft and Samuel Beckett, my favorite book (by a close margin) is Moby-Dick.
I enjoy travelling with my wife, Anika, who is doing a PhD in Egyptology at the University of Basel.
On our travels, we like a mixture of city trips and nature, museums and extended walks. Whenever possible we choose small BBs over large hotels, because they provide a more interesting and satisfying travel experience.
We are very quiet guests, generally out and about during the day, and enjoy a cosy room to return to in the evening. We are both non-smokers.
