Philosophy, Politics & Economics

"No one can be a great thinker who does not recognize,

that as a thinker it is his first duty to follow his intellect

to whatever conclusion it leads"

John Stuart Mill, On Liberty

Research topics, current projects and interests

My academic work broadly belongs to the so-called field of "philosophy of economics". I have a general interest in understanding how knowledge is produced in economics by investigating the nature and implications of the methods, theories and assumptions used by economists. This general interest is in particular applied to institutional economics, game theory, choice theory and normative economics. Crucially, I see economics both as a subject to study and as a set of tools, concepts and theories to be used in the philosophical inquiry.

I am currently working on a book project tentatively called Social Choice and Public Reason . Details on the project and drafts of the chapters are available here. I have also recently started to work on epistocracy from a PPE perspective. The general idea is to inquire whether a 'liberal epistocracy' is possible. Details can be found here.


More information can be found on my publications list and in the work in progress section. My complete CV can be downloaded here.
