Katharina’s primary research interests lie in metaethics and epistemology, which her work on interpersonal understanding and “endorsement” allows her to combine. She also has an interest in feminist philosophy and the philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein.

Before joining the project, Katharina was a doctoral student at the University of Vienna, where she defended her dissertation on moral relativism and the possibility of moral progress in April 2020. During her doctoral studies, she spent time as a visiting graduate student at New York University. Katharina has published a paper on “Functionalist Conceptions of Moral Progress and the Plurality of Ways of Life” in Yearbook Practical Philosophy in a Global Perspective and is co-editor of Social Epistemology and Epistemic Relativism published with Routledge. A handbook article (in German) on the notion of “internal relations” in Wittgenstein’s philosophy is forthcoming.
