  • Tutor (Politics)

Biography

Beginning teaching at the University of Glasgow in 2018, I have been a tutor here since 2021.  I also completed a PhD in Politics at the University of Glasgow in 2021.  Before this, I studied Art & Politics at Goldsmiths, University of London.  

Research interests

My research looks at matters relating to free will and autonomy within liberal political theory.  I examine how the perspective we adopt on free will affects how we think about autonomy within politics, and how this might alter how we formulate other political concepts.  A particular interest is how this affects an approach to the philosophy of education.  

 

More broadly, I am interested in ongoing debates within analytical political theory, especially where these debates concern science, metaphysics, and religion.
