Zur Person / CV

I am a PhD student working on approaches to quantum gravity as a case study for the project Modality in Physics and Metaphysics with Prof. Dr. Andreas Bartels (PI) within the DFG-funded research unit Inductive Metaphysics (FOR 2495). I studied physics and philosophy at the University of Bonn (MSc in Theoretical Physics, MA in Philosophy).
