Welcome! I am a political theorist who specializes in political philosophy and the history of political thought. I am a Lecturer in International Politics in the Department of Political Economy at King's College London. My interests include liberal theory and contemporary challenges to it, ethics and public policy, international justice and the authority of international institutions, and environmental ethics.

I received my Ph.D. from Brown University and then became a postdoctoral fellow and lecturer in the Program in Political Philosophy, Policy and Law at University of Virginia. Prior to joining KCL, I served as an Associate Professor and the Associate Director and Research Fellow at the Center for the Philosophy of Freedom at the University of Arizona, where I had a courtesy appointment in the Department of Philosophy.

My book Divided Sovereignty: International Institutions and the Limits of State Authority has been published by Oxford University Press in 2014.
