My doctoral dissertation pertains to creating  a new “work ethic” , inspired by Mohandas Gandhi, Gerald Cohen and others, to substantially contribute to  distributive justice and equality in analytical philosophy.  I submit that my "work ethic" concept would plausibly be more compelling than the existing literature in this field. Following from my new ”work ethic”, it would reformulate concepts such as self-appraisal, desert, merit, incentives, responsibility, “expensive tastes”, "legitimate expectations", humility, Universal Basic Income (UBI) and “effective altruism” in distributive justice and equality. It accounts for the changing economy in the twenty-first century, particularly with the research of Thomas Piketty, Gregory Mankiw, Lawrence Mishel, Alyssa Davis and others. 

I am at Oxford under the mentorship of Professor Stuart White. Before this I was a GEM (Globalisation, Europe & Multilateralism Joint Doctorate) candidate at LUISS University and ULB,Belgium under the mentorship of Professor Sebastiano Maffettone and Professor Jean Yves Pranchere. Before this, I had a Masters with Distinction at Oxford University and Honors at Yale University in legal theory and human rights and I have taught at Jindal Global University for 3 years.
