Welcome!

 

I am a DFF-International Postdoctoral Fellow at the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Groningen. I completed my PhD in political philosophy at Aarhus University in December 2020.

 

I do research in political philosophy, in particular on the boundary problem in democratic theory—the question of who should be included in democratic decision-making—and relational egalitarianism, a theory of justice according to which justice requires that we relate as equals. My postdoc project—'Democracy for Whom? Relational Egalitarianism and the Value of Democracy’—combines these by exploring whether relational egalitarianism may provide a solution to the boundary problem (for more, see my research page). I also have a strong interest in intergenerational justice, paternalism and republicanism.
