DPhil in Politics: Political Theory

I am a DPhil candidate in Politics (Political Theory) at Nuffield College, where my research is supported by a Nuffield College Award. I am looking at a claim to leisure, confronting debates around the nature of work and leisure, perfectionism and neutrality, and distributive justice.

I previously studied Politics at Cardiff University (First) and the Political Theory MSc at the London School of Economics (Distinction), where I took a keen interest in conceptions of liberty and wrote my dissertation on freedom of speech.
