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 a 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. I received an MA in Philosophy (Applied Ethics) from Utrecht University, and then a PhD in Politics (Political Theory) from the University of Reading. At Reading, I was a Leverhulme Doctoral Scholar in Climate Justice, working under the supervision of Rob Jubb and Patrick Tomlin. During my PhD, I spent six months as a visiting researcher at the Normative Orders Cluster of Excellence at Goethe University Frankfurt.


After my PhD, I was a Teaching Fellow in Political Theory at the University of Warwick. I took up my current position at Nuffield in October 2020. I am also an Associate Editor at the journal Res Publica
