My interests lie in moral and political philosophy and practical rationality, as well as intersecting areas in economics and political science. I am especially interested in issues of distributive justice, including ones arising across states and generations. I explore how egalitarian distributive principles should guide the design of social institutions that shape the prospects of children, parents, the elderly, and future generations. My current work focuses on how we should deal with the needs of the elderly and with variations in lifespan.
