My work lies at the intersection of global, long-term environmental problems like climate change, and ethical and political philosophy. My current research project explores the relationship between ideal theories of justice and political reality. I ask whether we should allow facts about the nature of climate change as a particular sort of political problem to shape the principles of climate justice.
I have published in Ethics, Policy & Environment and Ethical Theory and Moral Practice, and co-wrote the entry on “climate change justice” for the Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
I also work on questions regarding the moral rights of future generations, the “domination” of future generations, and individual responsibility for climate change.
