CHRISTMAS

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.


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.
