I am a PhD-student at the Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium and currently also a Fellow in Philosophy at Harvard University. I am working on my dissertation on Personal Identity and the Formal Self, which I plan to defend in 2012. In this dissertation I try to combine insights from philosophy of mind (Wittgenstein, Derek Parfit, Bernard Williams, P.F. Strawson, Quassim Cassam, Garreth Evans, David Wiggins, John McDowell) and phenomenology (Sartre, Husserl).
