Biography

I have studied law at the University of Basel in Switzerland, worked as a trainee in the legal service of a municipal administration, as a trainee in the public law division of the Swiss Federal Office of Justice, as a research assistant at the University of Zürich and now want to write a dissertation on legal reasoning.

In my planned dissertation project I am trying to build a model for normative and factual reasoning. I am trying to build a model we can use for guidance, when we – in practice – make decisions or create and apply normative rules and which should provide us with a better theoretical understanding of what we do, when we make decisions or create and apply normative rules.
