I am a Senior Lecturer in Political Philosophy at King's College London.
My work engages with the philosophical analysis of property rights and state authority. I am interested in how abstract theories of justice ground them in normative ideals of freedom and/or equality, as well as their application to areas such as political and economic development, urbanism, and environmental governance.
I am the Philosophy, Politics, and Economics BA/BSc programme director, and teach in the Department of Political Economy with an interdisciplinary ethos. I have created two new undergraduate modules: Marxian Political Economy and Freedom & the State.
I have also taught Introduction to Political Theory, Contemporary Issues in Political Theory as well as two post-graduate modules Radical Political Economy and Liberty, Equality, and Justice: Political Theory and Public Policy.
I recently spent my sabbatical (Spring 2023) visiting the Authority and Territory project at the University of Fribourg in Switzerland, the Smith Institute for Political Economy and Philosophy at Chapman University in California, and the Classical Liberal Institute at the New York University School of Law.
Outside of the academy, I serve as Reader in the parish of Saints Peter and Paul, in the Holy Orthodox Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain (Ecumenical Patriarchate). I also enjoy powerlifting and regularly compete at British Powerlifting meets.
