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.

Teaching

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:
