I am an assistant professor at McGill University, jointly appointed in the Institute for Health and Social Policy and the Department of Philosophy. I am also a member of the Centre de recherche en éthique.
My research focuses on egalitarian theories of distributive justice and the links between political philosophy and social policy, especially public health policy. My recent and ongoing projects address issues such as the relationship between distributive and relational theories of equality; conceptions of health (in)equality and the social determinants of health; global health measurement; and concerns about equality that arise in connection with specific health policies and interventions (especially in relation to smoking and obesity).
I received my DPhil in Political Theory/Political Philosophy from Oxford in 2008. Before coming to McGill, I held positions at the Harvard Program in Ethics & Health, Lancaster University and the European College of Liberal Arts (now Bard College Berlin).
