My area of specialization is ancient philosophy, in particular Aristotle. I have also worked on the Norwegian philosopher Peter Wessel Zapffe and on the history of philosophy more broadly.
I obtained a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Oslo in 2020. Before that, I studied philosophy and classics at the Humboldt University of Berlin and at the Universities of Oslo and Vienna.

My PhD project was on the ethics of Aristotle, who thought that we need to live long in order to become happy. More specifically, my project was to figure out how long is enough. Apart from developing this project further, I am also working on Aristotle’s poetics.
