Brief Bio:
My research interests include political philosophy, technology ethics, and animal ethics.
I have previously published on the genetic engineering of animals and the political philosophy of Thomas Hobbes.

My current research focuses on the relationship between liberalism as a theory of political justice and democracy as a system of political deliberation. I defend a view of liberalism that is grounded in the idea that human beings are capable of moral and social progress and that civil and economic liberties are essential for that progress. I further argue that liberalism and democracy are rooted in distinct but equally important political values and that they can therefore come into conflict.
