I am a DPhil1 Student in Politics at the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Oxford, and a member of Christ Church.2 I am mainly interested in normative political philosophy, and, in particular, questions of justification in liberal political theory. Specifically, my work is concerned with the challenge that fundamental moral disagreement poses to public justification.

Previously, I completed my MPhil in Political Theory at Oxford. In my thesis, I explored how to address unreasonable views from the perspective of liberal political theory. During the MPhil, I was a member of New College.3

Before coming to the UK, I completed my bachelor's degree in political science at the University of Bamberg and worked as a student research assistant at the Chair for Political Theory ("Lehrstuhl für Politische Theorie").

I use LaTeX for my type-setting (you should, too!), and have collected some resources for using LaTeX for work in the Humanities.

I am on Twitter and occasionally blog here. If you would like to contact me by email and want the content to stay between us, you can find my public PGP-key here.


  1. Called a PhD anywhere else in the world.
  2. Despite the name, not a church. Does have a cathedral, though.
  3. Despite the name, not actually new.
