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.

My research interests lie in political philosophy and, in particular, the following debates:

(i)     The scope of justice, and whether and how it extends to choices made by individuals
(ii)    The role of responsibility within an egalitarian theory of justice
(iii)   The relevance of empirical research to political philosophy
