I joined Birmingham in October 2015, following a post-doctoral fellowship at Stockholm University. I completed my doctoral studies at the University of Sheffield, during which I was also a visiting student at Rutgers University, USA.
My work explores how the resources of political and legal philosophy can shed light on topics in normative and applied ethics. I am currently working on two main projects. The first is the ethics of using force, and the morality of non-state violence and humanitarian intervention in particular. The second explores the ethics of public health policies, and especially the question of the extent to which paternalism objections apply to public health interventions.
