Research Associate in Existential Risk, University of Cambridge

Alex’s research attempts to illuminate and address the moral questions that arise at the intersection of global justice and existential risk. His current project aims to provide a normative framework for thinking about claims to a scarce global carbon budget, taking into account both widespread noncompliance with obligations towards climate change and the existential risks associated with severe climate impacts. Alex’s background is in political philosophy. He was previously a Leverhulme Doctoral Scholar in Climate Justice at the University of Reading, and his broader research interests include egalitarianism, the contemporary relevance of benefiting from historical injustice and methodology in political theory. Alex was awarded a 3-year British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship, starting September 2020.
