I have been an ICREA Research Professor at UPF since 2010. Prior to that, I was Senior Lecturer at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Cambridge, and Fellow of St. John's College, which I joined in 2001. I had first arrived at Cambridge in 1999, as a Research Fellow at Emmanuel College, after studying at the University of Oxford, where I obtained a B.A., an M.Phil. and a DPhil.degree.
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 have been 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.
