I am a postdoctoral fellow in philosophy at Northwestern University.

I am based in the Brady Scholars Program in Ethics and Civic Life, a unique program which educates undergraduate fellows about civic values through philosophical discussion and practical engagement with local communities. Learn more about it here

I work on issues in moral and political philosophy. Right now, I'm mainly working on a study of joint obligation. I'm also thinking about what makes personal autonomy valuable.

Previously, I was a Leverhulme postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto, and an associate lecturer in political philosophy at University College London (UCL).

I completed my PhD in Philosophy at UCL 2021.

My PhD dissertation was about the responsibilities which individuals bear in the face of structural injustice.

My paper Joint Ought recently appeared in Philosophy & Public Affairs, and was selected for a PEA Soup discussion.
