I am a DPhil candidate in Philosophy at the University of Oxford, based in the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics and St Cross College. My doctoral research, entitled 'The Question of Exclusion in Rawlsian Contractualism', is funded by the Society for Applied Philosophy and the Sir Richard Stapley Educational Trust, and is supervised by Tom Sinclair and Dominic Wilkinson. I am also a Research and Administrative Assistant on the Wellcome-Trust funded project 'Neurointerventions in Crime Prevention: An Ethical Analysis'.

Prior to joining Oxford, I completed an MSc in Political Theory at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). My thesis, written on luck egalitarianism and genetic engineering, was supervised by Laura Valentini. Before that, I had graduated from the University of Warwick with a BA in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics. My thesis was about Kidney Sales and Political Liberalism, and was supervised by Matthew Clayton.
