I am a Senior Lecturer in the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Lincoln where I teach Key Social Science Concepts, Human Rights, Social Issues and Social Justice, Images of Crime and Applying Research.
I have a PhD from King's College London, a B.A. in Philosophy from University College London and an M.Phil. in Political Theory from the University of Oxford. I was a Fellow at the NYU School of Law from 2016 to 2019. I have published research, among other places, in the American Journal of Political Science, The British Journal of Criminology, and Polity. I also have work forthcoming in Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy.
My research explores the epistemic challenges of maintaining a stable society with minimal reliance on the exercise of power. My work benefits from interdisciplinary collaboration, especially within the framework of Philosophy, Politics and Economics. My co-authors include Nancy Cartwright, Charles Delmotte, Aris Trantidis, Siddhartha Bandyopadhyay and Rachela Colosi.
