Om mig

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Philosophy at Stockholm University. My research interests are in political philosophy, applied and normative ethics. In particular, I work on themes from the ethics of war, such as compensation and the morality of risk.

In January 2020, I began working on a three-year research project (“Towards a Risk-Sensitive Account of Moral Rights”) funded by the Swedish Research Council. The aim of this research project is to develop a risk-sensitive account of moral rights that explains whether, how and why the strength of rights is sensitive to risks of harm. As part of the project, I will spend two years as a visiting researcher at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
