I’m a postdoctoral researcher, affiliated with the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics and OsloMet, and a Junior Research Fellow at Linacre College, Oxford.

My research interests are at the intersection of ethics and economics. The focus of my post-doctoral work (funded by the Norwegian Research Council) is on ethical aspects of contagion, both in relation to infectious and non-communicable diseases. The project builds on my Ph.D. thesis in philosophy, where I examine our duties to participants in delicate market transactions.
