I studied Philosophy at the University of Reading. My doctoral thesis focused on the topics of Fairness, Moral Demands, and Global Poverty and I continue to research issues relating to both Fairness and Distributive Justice.
Before joining Reading, I lectured in Ethics, Contemporary Political Philosophy and Feminism at the University of Warwick and in Moral Philosophy, Political Philosophy, and Aesthetics at Cardiff University.
