About M

I've studied in Salzburg and Vienna on philosophy, biology and also film, theater and media sciences and graduated in 2008 with a thesis on the dialectical philosophy of nature. Since January 2013, I am employed as a Senior Scientist at the Centre for Ethics and Poverty Research (ZEA) and before that I was a research fellow at the ifz, the international research center for social and ethical issues from 2009-2012.

Together with Gunter Graf, I also supervise the Salzburg Contributions to Social Ethics, the joint Working Paper Series of the ZEA and the ifz. I am also one of the founding editors of theZeitschrift für Praktische Philosophie, the first fully open access scholarly journal in practical philosophy in the German-speaking world.

The expertise of the Salzburg geologists in finding gold or rare earths is, for example, very much in demand in Iran. Rare earths are among the most coveted raw materials in the world.
