I am a Lecturer in Global Ethics at the Centre for the Study of Global Ethics (University of Birmingham). I obtained my PhD in Philosophy and Moral Sciences in December 2014 from Vrije Universiteit Brussels with a dissertation on the challenges climate change (and other problems of environmental sustainability) pose to our conceptions of individual freedom and responsibility. Building on this, my current research focuses on the ethics of climate change, and the perspective of duty-bearers on issues of global justice. My broader research interests include global justice, human rights, climate ethics, cosmopolitanism and recognition theory.
