I work in moral, political, and legal philosophy. I recently finished my PhD from the London School of Economics. Starting fall 2020 I will be a Post-Doc at the Center for Population-Level Bioethics at Rutgers University.

My current work falls in three project. The first project is on the ethics of risk. In the past, I have worked on a contractualist account of risk imposition. More recently, I have started thinking about the ethics of risk in clinical research in particular in connection with the coronavirus pandemic. The second project is on the fair allocation of health care. In this project I seek to connect my previous work on aggregation with questions of priority-setting and rationing in health care. The third project is on discrimination. This project spans across ideas of discrimination in legal philosophy and ideas of discrimination in applied ethics, such as disability discrimination in health care.

My PhD dissertation focused on the importance of the separateness of persons. I argued for a relational understanding of the separateness of persons that supports a broadly contractualist account of morality. In the dissertation, I apply this understanding of the separateness of persons to questions of distributive justice, risk, aggregation, and deontological constraints. I also argue that the separateness of persons matters to morality even if our personal identity should not matter to us rationally.

Here is my CV. You can see short descriptions of my research below.
