I joined the Department of Politics and Public Administration in September 2015 as a Postdoctoral Researcher in Political Theory, where I will be conducting research for the Mobility & Inclusion in a Multilingual Europe (MIME) project ( http://www.mime-project.org/ ). Before joining the Department, I completed a PhD in political theory at the University of Manchester. I also hold an MA in philosophy from University College Cork, and an MSc. in Human Rights from University College Dublin.
I write mostly about issues in contemporary moral and political philosophy. My current research interests include ideal and non-ideal theory, political feasibility, linguistic justice, and political liberalism. My published work includes articles on political feasibility, motivational limitations on the demands of justice, and the morality of digital piracy.
I work mainly on issues in contemporary political and moral philosophy. My PhD thesis concerned the relationship between ideal and non-ideal approaches in theories of distributive justice. I am interested in different aspects of political feasibility, including moral demandingness, collective action, and decision-making under conditions of uncertainty.
From September 2015 I will be working on the Mobility & Inclusion in a Multilingual Europe (MIME) Project ( http://www.mime-project.org/ ) at the University of Limerick. My role in this project involves working with a team of political theorists and other experts to explore the implications of multilinguialism within the European Union in terms of distributive justice.
