I studied at the University of Oxford where I obtained a BA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics, an MPhil and a PhD in Political Philosophy. I then moved to Cambridge where I was a Research Fellow at Emmanuel College before joining the Faculty of Philosophy and St. John's College. ICREA Research Professor at UPF since October 2010.
My work is in moral and political philosophy. I have worked on the ethics of markets, egalitarianism, and theories of well-being. Since September 2015, I am the PI of an ERC Consolidator project on "Justice and the Family. An Analysis of the Normative Significance of Procreation and Parenthood in a Just Society". The project examines what liberal egalitarian theorists of justice should think about how the costs and benefits of children should be distributed, both among contemporaries and across generations. I hold we need to address these relatively neglected questions to develop a complete and defensible theory of justice.
