Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership - Student Profiles

 

Biography

After completing my BA in Philosophy at the University of Vienna with a thesis on the role of spatiality and climate in the work of Martin Heidegger and Watsuji Tetsuro, I pursued my interest in experiences of weather and climate further, completing my MA in Philosophy at the University of Freiburg with a thesis on the phenomenology of weather.

My main interests lie in the philosophy of geography, geographical theory, and cultural geography. My current research focuses on how we come to understand climate(-change) through the lenses of scientific, speculative, and phenomenological realism.

Phenomenology (of nature, atmospheres, space, and place); Ancient Philosophy; Critical Theory; Blue & Plant Humanities
