Professor

Primary fields of research

My primary research areas are in political philosophy: egalitarianism, prioritaritarianism, migration, identity politics, secularism, social cohesion, population ethics and global justice.

Currently, I'm working on distributive justice (egalitarianism, prioritarianism) and am writing a book on identity politics (provisionally titled Identity Politics: Left and Right).
