I am an SNSF Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the chair for ethics and political philosophy at the University of Fribourg

I completed a DPhil at the University of Oxford in 2018, after which I was a Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellow at Nuffield College

My primary research interests are in political philosophy, moral philosophy, and the philosophy of law. My current work focuses on legitimacy and authority, social stability, and territorial rights.
