My interests are in the history of philosophy, the history and philosophy of biology, philosophy of history, and the digital humanities. My speciality in history of philosophy concerns the development of German philosophy, logic, axiomatics, and philosophy of science from Wolff to Kant. In the history and philosophy of biology, my research has been focused on eighteenth-century physiology, teleology, embryology, and animal cognition. I have intensively studied debates in philosophy of history and historiography. I am further working on various digital humanities projects in philosophy.
