PhD in Philosophy, Stanford University (2014)


My research focuses on legal and political philosophy, and it falls into three areas. The first concerns the nature of legitimate political authority, and especially whether democracies can make a special claim of political legitimacy. My second area of research concerns classical political thought, namely, the account of law and freedom in Plato’s later writings. My third area of research concerns global civil society, with a focus on international organizations. For more information, please see my personal website.
