DPhil in Politics

I am a DPhil student in Political Theory working on a thesis on the ethics of immigrant selection. In this project, I examine the wrongs and harms of present-day immigrant selection policy and the significance of injustice in the history of immigrant selection policy. 

I am also interested in nationality and citizenship, social and global justice, and historical injustice. 

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.
