I am a Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellow in Politics at Nuffield College, University of Oxford. My research is in normative political theory, and focuses on issues relating to climate change, migration and displacement, housing and gentrification, and territory.

I grew up in York and undertook an BA in Philosophy and French at the University of Sheffield, during which I spent some time teaching English in a lycée in Nord-Pas-de-Calais. In 2015, I moved to the Netherlands to pursue an MA in Philosophy (Applied Ethics) at the University of Utrecht. After graduating in 2016, I moved back to the UK to pursue a PhD in Politics (Political Theory) at the University of Reading as a Leverhulme Doctoral Scholar in Climate Justice. I wrote a thesis titled 'Justice in Climate-induced Migration and Displacement' under the supervision of Rob Jubb and Patrick Tomlin. In 2018, I spent six months as a visiting researcher at the Normative Orders Cluster of Excellence at Goethe Universität Frankfurt am Main. I started as a Teaching Fellow in Political Theory at the University of Warwick in January 2020 and completed my PhD in March 2020. I took up my current position at Nuffield in October 2020.
