Academic Profile

I am a political theorist currently in my final year pursuing a DPhil in the Department of Politics & International Relations. My research concerns the philosophy of work, and Republicanism and domination in contemporary political theory. I am interested in the limits of the Republican approach to the workplace, as well as domination as an ordering concept in modern Left-wing thought. 


Before Oxford I studied for a BA and MPhil in the Philosophy Faculty at the University of Cambridge, and I maintain an interest in the overlap between political philosophy and the philosophy of language and social epistemology. 

Teaching specialism, interests and experience

Since 2015 I have tutored the course 'Marx & Marxism' to visiting students at Hertford College.
