PhD Supervision

I am available as supervisor for projects that relate to my interest. My approach can best be described as analytical political philosophy (broadly conceived), but I am also interested in philosophy of the social sciences. I like research in political philosophy that builds bridges to game theory, social choice theory, or behavioural economics. I have recently worked on self-serving biases, on the holism-individualism debate in the social sciences, on epistemic democracy, on ethical issues related to climate change, and on theories of social norms.

I get asked quite often whether I'm available as a supervisor. Please find out here whether I might be the right supervisor for you.

I currently supervise or co-supervise Nimrod Kovner, Jared Finnegan, and Fergus Green. Mollie Gerver finished her PhD in 2016 and is now at Leeds and will soon join Newcastle University as an Assistant Professor.


I teach courses on all levels, from undergraduates to doctoral students. I cover normative political theory, foundations and methods of political theory, philosophy of the social sciences and the political philosophy of environmental change. The courses I teach this year are:
