Welcome

Photo on 24-04-2014 at 17.39 #4I am a Lecturer in Political Theory at the Department of Political Science, University College London. I am also the Programme Director of the department’s MA in Legal and Political Theory. Previously, I was a Fellow in Philosophy at the London School of Economics.

At present, I am on leave from UCL as a research associate at the School of Philosophy, ANU (June – December 2015), thinking about feasibility, futility, and structural injustice.

My research interests lie in political philosophy. In particular, my research focuses on two areas: first, the relevance of individual choice and social norms to issues of justice and, second, the relevance of empirical research to political philosophy. I am also interested in debates about political resistance.

On this website you can find more information about my research and teaching.

You can also find me on academia.edu and on PhilPapers
