I am an MPhil Student in Political Theory. My academic interests lie broadly in moral and political philosophy. My current interests are in the broad area of global justice, particularly normative questions related to global health and migration.
Prior to joining the Department as an MPhil Student, I was Provost's Scholar in Philosophy (2018) and Academic Visitor in Political Theory (2019) at Worcester College, University of Oxford. I hold a Bachelor of Arts (Philosophy and Politics) and a Bachelor of Health Sciences (Public Health) from the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
I am passionate about research and outreach, and have published peer-reviewed journal articles in a number of topics, as well as several pieces about philosophy in the mainstream media.
