Research project

I work on a project titled "The Division of Ethics from Political Philosophy: Kant and Baumgarten on Right, Virtue, and Justice", funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 101027095.

Academic interests

My research is in the field of Immanuel Kant's ethics, with a special focus on Alexander Gottlieb Baumgarten's legacy and a growing interest in Kant's political philosophy.
