DPhil in Politics

I am a DPhil student in Political Theory working on a thesis on the ethics of immigrant selection policy. In this project, I examine the ways in which states select immigrants, and I argue that much of this is unjust. I also explore the signifcance of historical injustice in immigrant selection policy for present-day immigration policy. More broadly, my research interests are in nationality and citizenship, social and global justice, and historical injustice. 

I am a Stipendiary Lecturer in Political Theory at Mansfield College, University of Oxford.

My doctoral research is supported by a Clarendon Scholarship and a Nuffield College Award. Prior to the DPhil, I completed the MSc in Political Theory Research at the University of Oxford, where I was funded by the Jusoor Scholarship at St Antony’s College.
