I am a legal scholar at the University of Hamburg. My research interests are in criminal & human rights law, legal theory, and issues at the intersections of law, philosophy, and cognitive sciences.

At present, I am the PI of two international and interdisciplinary research collaborations. One concerns legal and ethical issues arising from the blending of artificial and organic Intelligence through neurotechnologies, Hybrid Minds, the other concerns the the return of psychedelics into medicine. With colleagues, I convene the Freedom of Thought Research Network.

I co-edit the book series Palgrave Studies on Neuroscience, Law & Human Behavior. If you have a manuscript or ideas for edited volumes, please let me know (here is our CfP). Im also an associate editor of the Journal Neuroethics.

Another topic that I spent much time exploring recently concerns borderlines between norms and nature and relations between legal reasoning & psychology, or law & biases. Sketches of other projects and ideas can be found at the research page. More about me, well, my digital persona, here. Please get in touch via PM for comments, pointers to research, ideas for collaborations, or feedback!
