About Me

I am a fellow in the Department of Government at the London School of Economics and Political Science. I completed a doctorate in the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Oxford in 2019. Prior to the start of my doctoral work, I completed the BPhil in philosophy at Oxford, and a BA (hons) in philosophy at the University of Toronto
My research focuses on the political philosophy of Immanuel Kant. My dissertation developed a novel reading of Kant's account of citizenship. I am also interested in his views on state authority and legitimacy, provisional rights and the state of nature, and welfare and redistribution. 
In addition to my interest in Kant, I am also interested in contemporary debates in political philosophy,  applied ethics, and early modern philosophy.
