Person

Ph.D. in philosophy. My main research concerns the normative dimension of climate change, or more specifically, a fair distribution of the costs and benefits of dealing with climate change. A related research interest is intergenerational justice, that is, questions about justice between generations. In addition to that, I have a general interest in political and moral philosophy, and in particular their methodological underpinnings and John Rawls's theories and methods. I have also done research and teaching on human rights.

Between 2015-2017 I worked at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Since June 2015, I work with a postdoc project (funded by the Swedish Research Council) about the relation between climate ethics and climate politics.
