Biography

Prior to coming to Birmingham, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre de Recherche en Éthique, at the Université de Montréal (2017-2018), a Postdoctoral Fellow in Animal Studies at Queen’s University, Canada (2015-2016), and a Teaching Fellow in Political Philosophy at the University of York (2013-2015).

Research interests

Much of my current research is concerned with the place of nonhuman animals in contemporary theorising about global justice. Specifically, I am interested in what including nonhuman animals within a cosmopolitan framework means for our thinking about resource distribution, food security, sustainability, climate change, and war.

I am also working on a series of papers that explore whether key concepts in political and moral philosophy are helpful for thinking about interspecies justice. Examples include political agency, privacy, consent, trust, and harm.
