Rowan Mellor

I am a Teaching Fellow in Political Philosophy at University College London. From 2021-2023, I will be a Leverhulme postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto.

My research centres mainly on issues in moral and political philosophy. My doctoral thesis focusses on questions surrounding structural injustice. In particular, it addresses conceptual problems which arise when harm is caused collectively by the actions of many individuals.

I have also written on collective and vicarious responsibility, joint agency, explanation in the social sciences, and excuses.

My postdoctoral research will concentrate more closely on notions of collective rationality.
