Areas of interest

My research interests are in contemporary, normative political theory. The focus for a lot of my work is the application of theories of political liberalism and public justification, and I have published work that uses this theoretical basis to address questions around hate speech, expertise and responses to populism.

I have just begun work on a project considering how we ought to respond to concerns about mental health, especially conditions like depression and anxiety, when theorising about justice.

I am currently working on a collaborative project that applies methods from the social sciences and political theory to issues around the diagnosis, treatment and perception of endometriosis.

Background

I joined the department this year, having previously taught at the University of Birmingham for three years.
