I'm an associate professor in philosophy. I received my Ph.D. in theoretical philosophy from Stockholm university in 2004 with the thesis Kant's Transcendental Idealism and the Organism. After that I was teaching and researching at Södertörn university college, Uppsala university and Stockholm university before I came to Umeå university.

My main research area is Kant's philosophy. I'm interested in systematic questions about the nature of transcendental idealism, as well as more particular topics in Kantian philosophy, such as the role of logic, the status of teleological judgments in biology, and the foundations of morality.
