I am a political philosopher and a Lecturer at the Department of Political Science, University College London (2013 – present). I am also Programme Director of the department’s MA in Legal and Political Theory.

Previously, I have been a Fellow in the Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method, LSE (2012-2013) and a Research Associate at the School of Philosophy, ANU (June- December 2015).

My research focuses on three areas:

  1. Luck and its insignificance in both moral and political philosophy
  2. Political resistance and protest, and especially the role of outrage and offence
  3. The role of the facts in political philosophy 

On this website you can find more information about my research and teaching. You can also find me on academia.edu and on PhilPapers, or check out my first attempts at growing food on instagram.
